Julia Duckworth with Stella, early 1870s


Stella Duckworth (1869-1897) was born on 30 May 1869. She was Julia and Herbert Duckworth’s second child and was one year old when her father died. Julia is dressed in mourning in this picture with Stella, aged three or four. During Julia’s widowhood, “a cloud rested even upon her maternal affections,” according to Leslie Stephen. “It seemed to me at the time that she had accepted sorrow as her lifelong partner.”
