Grey, Dorothy

Daughter of John Grey, the London attorney for the Scarboroughs, who kept house for him, counseled him in his business affairs and was so happy in his companionship that she refused to marry his partner Mr. Barry and leave him.

"She had bright eyes somewhat far apart, and well-made, wholesome, regular features. Her nose was large, and her mouth was large; but they were singularly intelligent, and full of humour when she was pleased in conversation. As to her hair, she was too indifferent to enable one to say that it was attractive; but it was smoothed twice a day ... and always very clean. Indeed, for cleanliness from head to foot she was a model" - Mr. Scarborough's Family.
