Burton, Mrs. Cecilia

The charming wife of Theodore Burton, and mother of Cissy, Sophie (“Miss Pert”) and Theodore, Jr. A firm friend to Harry Clavering when the rest of the Burton family were very doubtful of him.

"She was tall and slight, with large brown eyes, and well-defined eyebrows, with an oval face, and the sweetest, kindest mouth that ever graced a woman. Her dark brown hair was quite plain, having been brushed simply smooth across the forehead, and then collected in a knot behind" - The Claverings
