Alison Mary Madden, daughter of Henry Madden and Cecilia Mary née Henderson, was born in 1899, probably in the place where she lived till her death in 1987, "Commoorang", Badger Creek near Healesville. She or her parents were among the many gardeners who grew seedlings for Alister Clark. This rose may have been an unnamed Clark rose.
