The Daily Dispatch: August 27, 1861., [Electronic resource], Superiority of the
Southern officers over the Northern. (search)
The representative of Sir Walter Scott. The direct representative of "The Great Unknown" is Mary Monica Scott, daughter of Mr. Hope Scott, the eminent parliamentary counsel, and Charlotte, daughter of John Gibcon Lockhart and Sophia, eldest daughter of Sir Walter Scott. Mary Monica is the only surviving child of the late Mrs. Hope Scott, for although a son and several other daughters were born, they died prematurely. Miss Scott, who was eight years old on the 8th of October last, is the heiress of Abbotsford House and estate, her father being merely administrator or tutor in respect to the property at present. Should Mary Monica die without issue, the property, but not the title, will report to the nephew or nephews of Sir Walter Scott, sons of his eldest brother Thomas, who are at present presiding in Canada.
