She must have been delighted, surprised and not a little apprehensive. At 42, following her recent marriage, Dowager Lady Georgina Middleton was pregnant. Her previous marriage to Thomas Willoughby, 4th Baron Middleton of Wollaton Hall, Nottinghamshire had been a long one, but childless.
Her new husband was Edward Miller-Mundy, who was a widower, a little younger than his new wife, who had already fathered five sons and a daughter. He was a very wealthy coal mine owner, who benefited from the building of canals and railways. He was High Sheriff of Derbyshire in 1772 and a Member of Parliament for nearly 40 years.
