-Given the resemblance to the portraits thought to be Eliza M-P, and to the ones below, this miniature and its copy is likely to show the young Jemina or Louisa.((Professor Colin Roderick obtained numerous material from the Murray-Prior family when he was writing the biography of Rosa Praed. He donated these miniatures to the Mitchell Library (MIN 335), with a note that he thought they were two of the Darvell sisters, one of whom was the grandmother of TLM-P's wife Nora. A keener eye for women’s clothes and jewellery reveals that one painting is a copy of the other. Given the family resemblance they are highly likely to Jemina or Louisa Murray-Prior, not Emily Darvall or her sister.))+Given the resemblance to the portraits thought to be Eliza Prior, and to the ones below, this miniature and its copy is likely to show the young Jemima or Louisa.((Professor Colin Roderick obtained numerous material from the Murray-Prior family when he was writing the biography of Rosa Praed.
