Violet was born in Abbotsbury, Dorset in 1874.
Violet was the daughter of William Todman Boreham a GP, originally from Suffolk who seems to have always practiced in Dorset and Devon. Her brother Herbert William Boreham also qualified as a Doctor in 1899.
In the 1911 census Violet is living with her mother Emma, a widow, at 26 Elmfield Road, Bromley. They appear to have moved to Bromley after the death of her father in 1902.
