Hilda Petrie demostró ser una trabajadora tan incansable como su marido. Dejó las excavaciones solo para tener y criar a sus dos hijos en Inglaterra (John y Ann, nacidos en 1907 y 1909). Sin embargo, en esos dos periodos no permaneció inactiva como arqueóloga. Corrigió y supervisó las publicaciones de su marido y siguió escribiendo cartas para conseguir patrocinadores para la British School of Archaeology in Egypt, fundada por él. Además, formó la Egyptian Research Students Association.
