Proudie Family

[Dr. Proudie] “has a large family, of which the three eldest are daughters.” Only three are named, the two oldest, Olivia and Augusta, and Netta, the youngest. Olivia, after considering herself engaged to Mr. Slope at one time, finally married the Rev. Tobias Tickler, a widower with three children, rector of a district church near Bethnal Green. The Rev. Optimus Grey married one of the others, probably Augusta.

They were "...fine engaging young ladies ... tall and robust like their mother, whose high cheekbones, and-, we may say auburn hair, they all inherit" - Barchester Towers
