About Elizabeth (Betsy) Grace Maule (Darling)

Elizabeth Grace Darling

From Grace Darling Website

Elizabeth was the fifth child and third daughter of William and Thomasin. The family referred to her as ‘Betsy’. At Longstone she shared her room with her young sister, Grace. Betsy became a maidservant and married John Maule, a draper in North Sunderland. They had two children: James Walter, born in 1837 and Thomasin, born in 1839.

When the many portrait painters came to paint Grace it is believed that, for a prank, Betsy sat for some of them, pretending to be Grace. Afterwards the sisters’ thought this was great fun.

Sadly, Betsy died two years after Grace, at the age of 32.
