From Richard Ellis:
In the 1881 Census she appears at 83 Sloan Street, Chelsea ‎(RG11/87, f53, p3)‎ in the household of Emma Beddley ‎(should be Baddeley)‎, widow. She is described as single, aged 26, born Lancashire, which matches your data, but is also described as 'sister'. Emma Baddeley's maiden name was Curtis ‎(or maybe Ellis, but therein lies another mystery)‎, so not obvious why she should be described as sister, or sister-in-law.

Notes for Louisa Cecelia Bazalgette Lucas LUCAS
On the basis of family stories, Louisa believed she was descended from Lucas aristocracy, and extensively researched her ancestry. It is 'on record' that the Rev Francis White, Rector of Ormsby, urged a William Lucas, who had secreted himself in Lincolnshire during the Civil War, to make claim to the Baronetcy of Lucas, but he refused. This she linked to her known ancestor, William Lucas of Authorpe ‎(abt 1670 - 1720)‎, but she was unable to find any proof of the connection.
Her research was presented to the SoG as The Lucas Pedigree:
''Perhaps the most attractive collection held by the Society are two beautifully illustrated albums compiled by Miss Louise Cecilia Bazalgette Lucas Lucas. She deposited them with the Society in July 1945, together with related paperwork. The albums however were compiled sixty years earlier.
The genealogy in the albums is by modern standards undoubtedly dubious. Any doubt however about the quality of the research however is immediately overwhelmed by the visual feast: page after page of hand-coloured coats of arms or gold leaf marginalia take the breath away.
The whole point of the album however was to commemorate a family however which Miss Lucas felt had suffered generations of decline. In the introduction she wrote 'We used to be big people once, but have gone down in the world. People at whom a hundred years ago we turned up our noses, now turn up their noses at us... We had married heiresses gone mounting up to the top of fortune's wheel, and it had been well with us - But alack, in these later days we had been too well known at Epsom and Newmarket. We had been very much at home at Crockford's ‎[gambling club]‎... ‎[and]‎ had generally misbehaved ourselves, and in consequences, our many acres had passed into the hands of Manchester gents, with fat snug faces, who wage war of extermination against the letter h and use big words when little ones would have done better.' ''
...and in the history of St Nicholas Church, Little Saxham, Suffolk :
''The oak hymnboard was carved and presented in 1913 by Mrs Louise Cecelia Bazalgette Lucas Stratton, a direct descendant of Sir Thomas Lucas. She also carved the oak panelling on either side of the Lucas monument in the chancel, incorporating in the frieze on the left side, arms of Lucas, Aspall, Lucas with Kemys in pretence, Petchy and Gedding and, on the right side, those of Morieux, Lucas, Kemys quartering Griffith ap Rees, Brampton and Kemys.''
