Mollett, Mrs. Mary

Matthew Mollett’s deserted wife, whose discovery by Mr. Prendergast made Mollett’s marriage to Lady Fitzgerald illegal, and cleared the Fitzgerald children of the taint of illegitimacy.

"...old and sickly looking.... Her face was thin and delicate and pale, and not hard and coarse; her voice was low, as a woman's should be, and her hands were white and small. Her clothes, though very poor, were neat, and worn as a poor lady might have worn them" - Castle Richmond
