Mary Quilter was a very petite woman standing just 5'2", and in her youth she was supposed to have had a 19" waist although this may have been constricted by the corsets of that era. She had auburn hair, which she inherited from her father.
It is apparent from her husbands career, that she had a very interesting and elegant life, with responsibility for large households.
Retiring to "Ghyllmead" she and Will had a large garden to maintain, and they both pitched into this with great enthusiasm.They produced a lovely picture. Mary often went for 5 or 6 mile walks. Towards the end of the war, Mary's memory began to fade, and later it went altogether. Will got a couple to live-in as housekeeper and gardener, and they helped a lot.
Will was very attentive towards Mary during her final years.
