The construction HAVE + nominal + VERBen (that is, the past participle of VERB) has three distinct meanings, which can only be distinguished by the context. In all three nominal is an object of VERB, which must be transitive, and nominal must be in Object case if it has a distinct Object form.

  1. Cause nominal to be VERBen

    I had my car repaired = "I caused my car to be repaired"
    The king had him executed = "The king caused him to be executed"

  2. Possess or encounter nominal in a VERBen state

    We now have the report drafted = The report is now before us in a drafted state
    Once we had her satisfied we closed the complaint = Once we were assured that she was fully satisfied ...

  3. Undergo or suffer the eventuality of nominal being VERBen

    This winter I had my house wrecked by a careless driver = I experienced the wrecking of my house
    She had her husband taken from her by consumption = She suffered the loss of her husband

In your quotation, the sense is #3: She used to suffer the[the indignity ofof] having a hat placed on her head.
