Biography

Emma Weeks was born on 20 May 1852 (although a Women's Voluntary Service magazine article from 1958 claims her birthday was on 28 May). She became the oldest person in the country upon the death of 107-year-old Rhoda Harris on 16 January 1959, and held the title until her own death on 6 February 1959, aged 106 years, 262 days. She held the title for exactly three weeks, the shortest anyone has held it. Her successor was Edith Grellier.
