Charlotte Trevanion

Description
Charlotte Hosier was just 18 when she married Cornish politician John Trevanion Purnell Bettesworth-Trevanion. She is pictured here in a white dress with gold and pearl jewellery.

The couple lived at Caerhays Castle in Cornwall which Trevanion rebuilt in the Gothic style. Charlotte died in 1810, aged 27. She was buried alongside her only daughter (their other six children were all sons) who died before her third birthday. Following Charlotte’s death, John fled to Paris having fallen into debt.
