It can be said that often the most interesting girls, produced visually the least interesting samplers. Take Eliza Margarita Barton. Daughter of Eliza Georgina Hawkins and James Barton was born in Matoonga, Bombay India (Sep.1825). It would appear she was sent to School back in England at The Pastures in Derbyshire where she worked her sampler, possibly because her father had died in 1829. Anyway she returned to India and married Captain James Arnold Heathcote in 1858 aged 33, a retired commander in the Indian Navy. Shortly after she again returned to England first to Hackney before renting the RED HOUSE, the most significant Arts and Crafts private family house built by the designer William Morris, completed in 1860. She died in 1916 aged 91.
