Dido Belle was the illegitimate daughter of Captain Lindsay, the aristocratic nephew of William Murray, Scottish by birth and Lord Chief Justice of England for many decades. The book tells the story of Dido's life in Lord Mansfield homes, from the time her father begged Lord and Lady Mansfield to be wards of the child Dido to the death at age 88 of Lord Mansfield, mainly cared for by Dido and to Dido's young death at age 43. It also raises issues of financial queries, Wills, Probate, and the place of a woman in society in those days, not quite chattel but not equal to men.
Keywords 18th Century  Lord Chief Justice of England  aristocratic household  trust funds, allowances, wages, compensation of slave owners  NIL COMPENSATION TO SLAVES
