NotesEdit

Benedicta ArmstrongEdit

  • Benedicta Armstrong married Captain DeVane at age fifteen and had two sons by him. She was widowed at age twenty.[1]
    • Edgar DeVane's wife is Maude.
  • At 21, Benedicta met and married Gerard Grey, Duke of Pardloe, Earl of Melton.[1]
  • Gerard Grey was murdered in 1741, though at the time it appeared to be a suicide, and his eldest son, Hal, repudiated the ducal title and referred to himself as Lord Melton. However, his youngest son, John, continued to use the term of address appropriate to the younger son of a duke—that is, Lord John Grey. (If John had followed Hal's lead, he would be called the Honourable John Grey, as the younger son of an earl.)
  • Benedicta remained a widow until her marriage to Sir George Stanley in 1758.
  • Sir George Stanley is himself a widower twice over: he has a stepson, Percy Wainwright, by his second wife.
    • Percy Wainwright's true given name is Perseverance, but since his mother's death he has given his full name as Percival Wainwright.

Harold GreyEdit

  • Hal's first wife was called Esmé; she was French. Hal discovered that she had betrayed him with another man, Nathaniel Twelvetrees, whom Hal killed in a duel. Esmé died in childbirth, as did the child.[1]
  • Benjamin Grey allegedly married a woman named Amaranthus Cowden, and they had a son.
  • Dorothea Grey married Denzell Hunter in 1778.
  • Olivia Pearsall is a cousin of Hal and John Grey, and was orphaned at a young age. She grew up as Hal's ward for ten years.
