Mistress Deborah

Living and learning in the past for you

Mistress Deborah's husband has been killed in the war, and she is therefore sheltering with her wealthy cousin. She brings with her little money, but has a charming personality.

Sir Watkyn is therefore striving to find her a new husband, in order both to lighten the burden on his own purse and to provide her with a secure future. Such duties of care for the wider family often fell on the shoulders of the principal man of a family in the period.
