Brattle, Fanny

The second daughter of Jacob Brattle,

"...a girl as good as gold, the glory and joy and mainstay of her mother, whom even the miller could not scold, - whom all Bullhampton loved. But she was a plain girl, brown and somewhat hard-visaged morsel of fruit as sweet as any in the garden, but one that the eye would not select for its outside grace, colour, and roundness" - The Vicar of Bullhampton
