The Only Time a Lady's Name Should Appear in the Newspaper


In Kate Morton's novel, The House at Riverton, the opinion of Lady Clementine, c. 1914, was,

"Aside from her marriage, her obituary is the only time a lady's name should appear in the newspaper...."

I think most of my ancestors must have subscribed to this opinion. And plenty didn't have their names in the newspapers when they married. How about yours?

  2. Suffragettes were briefly mentioned in the book by the younger daughters, but I think you're right that Lady Clementine would not have approved! Thanks for your visit and comment, Tony.
