She died in 1894 ? or in 1914? Modeha 07:28, 17 Feb 2004 (UTC)
- Amelia Bloomer death date is December 30, 1894
"Bloomers" (as in the underwear) links here.
I added a link to bloomers, as in the article of clothing. I thought it appropriate, since the article talks about them and Amelia Bloomer invented them. --Gary

- Amelia was also known as Amanda Bloomer, particularly in Great Britain.1850's: Amanda Bloomer goes to England to popularize her clothing - most every one is appalled with the notable exception of Queen Victoria who finds these modern cycling ladies quite sensible.
Based on this individual being included in the Calendar of saints (Episcopal Church in the United States of America), I am adding the Category:Anglican saints and the Saints WikiProject banner to this article. I am awaiting reliable sources which can be used to add the content to the article. John Carter 19:24, 29 June 2007 (UTC)
Early life name reference
In the opening paragraph, would it be appropriate to say "Amelia Jenks was born in 1818" instead of "Amelia Bloomer"? And then have the next sentence start with "She came from a family..."? Since she wasn't a Bloomer at birth, it doesn't seem right to automatically begin referring to her by her married name. Thoughts appreciated! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kathleenc (talk • contribs) 17:11, 22 October 2016 (UTC)
