Crawley, Mrs. Mary

Wife of the Rev. Mr. Crawley, whose fight to keep her husband and children fed and clothed was unending

"... she had endured with him and on his behalf the miseries of poverty, and the troubles of a life which had known no smiles. ... In all the terrible troubles of their life her courage had been higher than his. The metal of which she was made had been tempered to a steel which was very rare and fine" - The Last Chronicle of Barset.
