Greenow, Mrs. Arabella

Aunt of Alice, George and Kate Vavasor. She had married an old man when she was twenty-four and, when he died shortly after, was left with a fortune of £40,000. Although her grief for him was uncontrolled, she was not too discouraging to her suitors, and married Captain Bellfield.

In The Noble Jilt, represented by Madame Brudo.

"...a buxom widow, who with her eyes open chooses the most scampish of two selfish 'suitors, because he is better looking."- Autobiography
