Tringle, Emmeline, Lady

Wife of Sir Thomas, with two unattractive daughters and a hobbledehoy son. She made a home first for Ayala Dormer, and then Lucy, but her own daughters’ jealousy of the attractive cousins made her life burdensome.

"...with a house at the top of Queen's Gate ...with a palatial moor in Scotland, with a seat in Sussex and as many carriages and horses as would suit an archduchess. Lady Tringle had everything in the world, an open-handed husband, who was said to have told her that money was a matter of no consideration" - Ayala's Angel.
