Carroll, Capt. Patrick

An improvident worthless Irishman, who lived on the bounty of his brother-in-law Mr. Grey.

The family consisted of a nagging wife and four daughters: Amelia, “a forward, flirting, tricky girl of seventeen”; Sophy, who had delusions of her own importance in the world; Georgiana, “possessed of terrible vitality”; and the youngest, Ifinna.
