Lithograph. 230 x 280mm (9 x 11"). The 'Ladies of Llangollen' were Sarah Ponsonby (1755? - 1831), daughter of Chambre Brabazon Ponsonby, cousin of the Earl of Bessborough, and Lady Eleanor Charlotte Butler (1745? - 1829). For fifty years they lived together in complete isolation from society in a cottage at Plasnewydd in the vale of Llangollen, Denbighshire, north Wales. Neither left the cottage for a single night until their deaths. Their devotion to each other and their eccentric manners gave them wide notoriety, becoming a tourist attraction. They lie buried in Plasnewydd churchyard under a triangular pyramid inscribed with their names.
