Annie Greenly (née Barnard) is the great woman standing behind Edward Greenly. During his 25 years of surveying and producing the two volumes of the Memoir of Anglesey, she played a crucial role producing the index among other things.

Greenly outlived his wife by many years but he always acknowledged the debt he owed her.
