James Crawley's mother (d. Before 15 April 1912) was the sister-in-law of Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham and the 6th Earl of Grantham, the wife of 6th Earl of Grantham's brother, the mother to James Crawley, the future heir to the Earldom of Grantham and the grandmother of Patrick Crawley.
Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham did not get along with her, claiming that "a nastier woman never drew breath"; Violet's dislike also spread to her son, as Violet later stated that she "never cared for James." because "He was too much like his mother".
- ↑ Violet, in 1912, refers to her in the past tense, meaning she is already dead by that time. As well as this, Robert states that "James and Patrick" were on board the Titanic, but does not mention his aunt, giving credence to the fact that she was already dead by that time.
