Crofts, Dr. James

The physician at Guestwick near the Small House at Allington. Although he had but a small practice and a meager income, he won the hand of Lily Dale’s sister Bell.

"...a slight, spare man, about five feet nine in height, with very bright dark eyes, a broad forehead, with dark hair that almost curled ... with a thin well-cut nose, and a mouth that would have been perfect had the lips been a little fuller. The lower part of his face, when seen alone, had in it something of sternness, which, however, was redeemed by the brightness of his eyes" - The Small House at Allington
