She was nothing like Miss Havisham. From the article: "I think Vervia would be chuffed to bits and thoroughly enjoying it.The house was always full of people and she was very generous."

Miss Havisham was a recluse.

txchad: No, no, no. A REAL Mrs. Havisham wouldn't have had a husband.

From the article, it said Vervia lived alone after her fiance and father both passed away

I wonder how many women decided not to get married after a war killed their fiance or husband. It seems like there were a lot of them in the UK.

Who was her heir?

Or did they just start taking stuff?

Dedmon: I'm not interested enough to google it, but I find it rather unprofessional to keep referring to "miss haversham" as if everybody in the world knew who the hell she is?

"...everybody in the world..."
