| N.N. West |
|Behind the scenes|
|Portrayed by||Di Botcher|
Nanny West makes an enemy of Thomas Barrow after telling him not to touch Sybbie when he says hello as they are out walking with Sybbie in a pram. She later tries to give him orders and he ignores her. After she tries to tell him his place - which she says is below her - Thomas gives a false report of her to Cora Crawley. Thomas tells Cora that Nanny West is neglecting the children and leaving them unsupervised. Cora later goes to check up on her due to this report and overhears Nanny West speaking very unkindly to Sybbie, calling her a "wicked little cross-breed".
Cora sacks her on the spot and tells her she must leave in the morning and that she is not to be left alone with the children for a moment. Nanny West tries to insist she was playing a game and only joking, but Cora does not forgive her, insisting her "values have no place in a civilized home".
- It is implied, though never officially stated, that Nanny West was not only neglecting Sybbie but not feeding her properly as well, such as when she told Thomas she wanted the egg left out of Sybbie's tea but not George's.
