It is doubtful if any woman living has sat to more great artists than Lady Eden, who, it may be recalled, was the cause of the litigation between Whistler and her husband, Sir William

Eden. The latter commissioned the artist to paint a portrait of his wife, which, in a fit of temper, Whistler destroyed. Hence a suit for damages. Lady Eden is a daughter of the late Sir William Grey, and was married in 1886. A woman whose exceptional beauty is equalled by her charm and kind-heartedness, Lady Eden has not only earned much popularity in society, but also among the miners and working people of Durham, where, at Ferry Hill, her husband's charming country seat, Windlestone, is situated. She has done much to introduce brightness into their homes, and they demonstrated their gratitude on one occasion by presenting her ladyship with a beautiful aviary stocked with canaries. Lady Eden is a great bird fancier, canaries being her special favourites. Lady Eden is the mother of four sons and one daughter, the latter having married Lord Brooke, the eldest son and heir of the Earl of Warwick, in 1909.
