De Courcy, Lady Rosina

"The Lady Rosina was very religious, and I do not know that she was conspicuous in any other way" - The Small House at Allington

Lady Rosina never married, and as the family fortunes waned, she "...lived alone in a little cottage outside the old park palings, and still held fast within her bosom all the old pride of the De Courcys.... She was a tall, thin, shrivelled-up old woman ... very melancholy, and sometimes very cross". - The Prime Minister
