Ursula M. Bright was an early member of the Theosophical Society and a loyal friend of H. P. Blavatsky and Annie Besant. Her daughter was Esther Bright.

Mrs. Besant described her in this way:

One of the great fighters of her generation, a gallant soldier in all noble causes; joining the Theosophical Society in the last decade of the nineteenth century, she was one of its strongest supporters, nor wanting in perfect loyalty. To her generosity we owed the making of the Benares centre, and since Avenue Road was given up, my English home was with her.[1]

The Union Index of Theosophical Periodicals lists 5 articles by or about Mrs. Bright.
