| Lavinia Painswick |
|Family|| 6th Earl of Grantham (grandfather) † |
Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham (grandmother)
Lavinia Painswick was the daughter of Marmaduke Painswick and Lady Rosamund Painswick and, by extention, the niece of Robert and Cora Crawley, the Earl and Countess of Grantham. She also has a brother, Cyril, who does something "slightly nefarious in the Far East" and may have another brother called Freddie, whom Sybil mentions as a cousin "studying at Bath" in 1913.
Lavinia Painswick married a landed colonel in the Grenadiers, leaving her mother living alone in her Eaton Square house, and with the predisposition to meddle in family affairs: especially those involving her nieces Mary, Edith and Sybil, at Downton Abbey.
Behind the scenesEdit
- Lavinia Painswick is only mentioned on the Series One Press Pack released with the start of the series, and is never mentioned elsewhere; the same is true of her brother, Cyril.
