"The Custom of the Army"Edit

In Quebec, when Lord John Grey discovers Malcolm's infidelity, he confronts him, furious. Malcolm admits that he seeks the company of women to deal with the horrors of war.

Malcolm loses his right leg below the knee during the Battle of the Plains of Abraham and is shipped home to England. Meanwhile, his lover dies of smallpox, and his son is left with the child's grandmother, who sells the boy to Lord John. Grey leaves the boy in the care of a French mission priest.

Physical AppearanceEdit

Stubbs is aptly named, no taller than Grey himself, but roughly twice as wide, with a broad cherubic face, wide blue eyes, and a breezy manner that endeared him to his troops, if not always to his senior officers.

RelationshipsEdit

Olivia PearsallEdit

During the final plannings of Olivia Pearsall's wedding to Joseph Trevelyan Olivia met Malcolm and the two secretly courted. When Joseph went missing and the wedding was called off Malcolm sought approval for his marriage to Olivia from Lord John Grey, who in the absence of Harold Grey was head of the Grey Family. Wishing for his cousin to be happy and knowing that soon Stubbs, like he, would be shipped out with his regiment, agreed to the union. The two welcomed a son, Cromwell Stubbs, during her aunt's wedding on February 27, 1758.

Olivia remains unaware that while he was in Quebec he had an affair with an Indian woman resulting in an illegitimate son, John Cinnamon.

NameEdit

  • Malcolm is from the Scottish Máel Coluim which means "disciple of Saint Columba".[1]
  • Stubbs it is possibly a topographical but is usually locational deriving from the village of 'Stubbs' near Pontefract in the West Riding of Yorkshire, and virtually all the early name recordings are found in this area. The origin is from the word stybb and this refers to an area of ground covered by tree stumps, probably following a forest fire. The name later was applied as a nickname to people of short and/or stocky build.[2]
