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.

Special Note for Web Historians
Although there is no definitive proof, The Selman-Troytt Postcard Emporium may be the oldest purveyor of E-cards on the Internet. A copy of our first Royal Warrant may be examined here. Since the granting of this illustrious award we have been patronised by numerous aristocrats, many of whom insist upon using Selman-Troytt cards to express the depth of their affections. Indeed many of our cards - particularly those concerned with incest - have been directly inspired by a close examination of aristocratic lifestyles.
