Needlework of Edith Levy ~A PDF Download/ Printed Booklet ~ Hands Across the Sea Samplers

    Nicola tells us "Edith Helen Levy was born in Annerly, Surrey on April 13, 1869. Her parents were Joseph Solomon Levy and Maria, née Davis. Joseph was a prosperous merchant. Maria lived in Ireland, and the marriage took place in Dublin.

    In the 1881 census return, Edith can be found living at 11 Clifton Gardens in London with her parents and seven sisters. Her one brother was absent. A governess, nurse, cook, and house maid lived in. The 22-year-old “professional” governess was Celestine Deranger. She had been born in Geneva, Switzerland. It was probably Celestine who taught Edith needlework and supervised the samplers being stitched."
