Character description

Widow of Sir Archibald Parr, and hence sister-in-law of the governor of Jamaica.    She keeps her husband alive in the constant pronouncement of his opinions and strictures.   Rather disapproving of Teresa at first, she and her daughter undertake to teach the newcomer some of the basics of English manners during the journey, and she warms to her protegée.    After her daughter marries, she takes on a series of companions, none of whom stay for any length of time.   One of the most patient of them is her cousin Rebecca Nuthall.
