Jocelyn Cartwright & Lesley Carrington
One of the greatest scandals to break over
the Selman-Troytt family, although fortunately the facts were
not to emerge until some twenty years after Jeremy's death,
was the revelation that the demure Miss Lesley Carrington,
his fiancée between 1902-1903, was none other than his long-standing
acquaintance the amateur chemist and raconteur Jocelyn Cartwright.
Although such a revelation suggests a conspiracy of sorts,
the truth is even more astounding ... for it is now clear
that Jeremy had absolutely no knowledge that both his friend
and his fiancée were the same person. Even more remarkable
is that on occasion he would leave Jocelyn drinking in their
club in order to escort Miss Carrington for the evening ...
before then returning to his club for a 'nightcap' with Jocelyn!
Just how the energetic Mr Cartwright managed these evenings
remains a mystery.
