Here's a hint. She was the only legitemate child of Lord Byron, the poet. Also, I'm thinking this is probably obscure to anyone not into computer/technology history so feal free to reseach if you need to.

Correct. She wrote algorythms for Charles Babbage's anylitical engine, though it was never built, and was one of the first to see uses for such a device beyond mathematical applications, including word processing and music generation.
