Was there a "Gale Temple"?

Some 55-60 years ago a new born baby girl was abandoned in my home city of Bristol. U.K.

She was left, on a very stormy night, near Bristol’s chief railway station - “Bristol Temple Meads”

Hence the local press [the “Bristol Evening Post“, or the
“Bristol Evening World” (now defunct), or the “Western Daily Press”], gave this abandoned babe a name. One or more of these newspapers called her “Gale Temple”.

I wonder what happened to this wee child.

Did “Gale Temple” go on to have a wonderful life? Or has she been forgotten to history?

I also wonder why I remembered this story all these years later.

Did I remember it correctly?

Or has the miasma of memory deceived me?
