Costume at the Duchess of Devonshire's 2 July 1897 Fancy-dress Ball[edit | edit source]

At the Duchess of Devonshire's 2 July 1897 fancy-dress ball, Violet Manners (at 448) was the Marchioness of Granby at the time.

  • <quote>The Marchioness of Granby was Isabella Marchioness of Granby, great-grandmother of the present marquis, and wore a yellow short-waisted dress, with green waist band and shoulder straps, and a lace cap over her hair, tied with blue ribbon.</quote> (Leicester 1897-07-10: 11, Col. 4B).
  • <quote>The Marchioness of Granby, as Isabella Marchioness of Granby, great-grandmother of the present Marquis, wore a yellow short-waisted dress, with green waistband and shoulder straps</quote> (Guernsey Star 1897-07-06).

Violet Manners's portrait in costume is #1 in the album presented to the Duchess of Devonshire and now in the National Portrait Gallery.[1] The printing on the portrait says, "The Marchioness of Granby as Mary Isabella Duchess of Rutland after Cosway," with a Long S in Marchioness and Duchess.[2] She is one of the Cosway portraits.

Henry Manners, Marquis of Granby, was also present (at 447).

Questions and Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. Violet Manners was at the Duchess of Devonshire's ball as Lady Granby; her photograph is the first one in the album at the National Portrait Gallery (album).
  2. Lady Granby is the Marchioness of Granby; only one Lady Granby attended.
  3. Should have just called this page "Manners," as I had done in Vickypedia?
