Neville, Mrs

The widow of a brother of the Earl of Scroope, with whom he had quarreled. However, because of the death of his own son, her sons became the heirs to the tide.

"She was an old woman, with the relics of great beauty, idolizing her two sons for whom all her life had been a sacrifice, in weak health, and prepared, if necessary, to sit in silent awe at the feet of the Earl who had been so good to bet boy" - An Eye for an Eye
