Furnival, Mrs. Kitty

Wife of Thomas Furnival, bitterly jealous of her husband’s supposed attachment to Lady Mason.

"...a stout, solid woman, sensible on most points, but better adapted, perhaps, to the life in Keppel Street than that to which she had now been promoted.... Her eye was still round, and her cheek red, and her bust full -there had certainly been no falling off there ...but the bloom of her charm had passed away, and she was now a solid, stout, motherly woman, not bright in converse but by no means deficient in mother-wit" - Orley Farm.
