Lady Rose Aldridge[1] (née MacClare)[2] ( Autumn 1902[3]) is the youngest child of Hugh and Susan MacClare, the niece of Agatha and Louisa, the younger sister of James and Annabelle, the sister-in-law of Annabelle’s husband and the great-niece of Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham. In Autumn 1920, she visits Downton Abbey and stays with Violet in the Dower House. She returns a year later, in September 1921, when the Crawley family visits her home at Duneagle Castle, where it is agreed that Rose will go to stay with them when her parents go to India. She moves there around February 1922

Lady Rosamund Painswick (née Crawley, b. between 1860 and 1874[1]) is the widow of a very wealthy banker, the late Marmaduke Painswick and the daughter of the previous Earl of Grantham and Violet Crawley; her closest ally within the family is her only sibling Robert. She is the sister-in-law of Cora, aunt of Lady Mary, Lady Edith and the late Lady Sybil, aunt-in-law of the late Matthew Crawley and Tom Branson and great-aunt of Sybbie BransonGeorge Crawley and Marigold Gregson.

She lives in London by herself on 35 Eaton Square. She likes to meddle in family affairs and has a very close bond to Robert and Downton Abbey[2].

    No family member or any attorney that attached themselves to the Rosamond legacy, helped me in any way, nor did they know any of the history found in this blog. I get $700 dollars a month to live on. This is quite a achievement that needs to be studied in regards to funding creative people and in handling all creative legacies. I am a consultant to others.
