Podgens, Mr. And Mrs

Grocers at Framley Cross, “…great favorites with her ladyship [Lady Lufton], both having been servants up at the house.” They lived near the church, Mr. Podgens, “the neat grocer, being the clerk and sexton,” and Mrs. Podgens, “the neat grocer’s wife, the pew-opener in the church.”

Their new baby was described by Lucy Robarts as “a duck.”
