In one night, it catapulted Lillie Langtry from an unknown young woman trying desperately to break into London Society into one of the most well-known women in the Victorian era. Her father was over 6 feet tall, with a shock of white hair and piercing blue eyes, while her mother, Emilie Davis, was petite and auburn haired.
Due to her mother's ill-health, Lillie began to appear at official functions, in mother's place.Coinciding with their move to London, Lillie’s younger brother, Reggie, was killed in a freak horse accident. It was during this rather bleak period of her life that fate finally intervened.She and Edward were visiting a the new aquarium in Westminster where they ran into old family friends of the Le Bretons, the 7th Viscount Ranalegh and his two daughters, Jersey inhabitants who spent the season in London.They moved to Southampton in England, where Lillie was bored out of her mind.There was little society in Southampton and Edward spent most of his time racing his yacht.She'd had one unsuccessful visit here at the age of 16.
Many wealthy Londoners chose Jersey as a winter retreat.
Not a typical education for a Victorian girl, who mainly learned needlework and how to deal with household management.
She wrote in her autobiography that she was nick-named Lillie because of her beautiful lily-white complexion.
She eagerly wore her one evening dress to the event, but the modiste in Jersey could not compete with the extravagant creations that London society women wore.
She talks in her autobiography of being at a dinner and being confused by the many forks and knives displayed in front of her.
She became accustomed to speaking publicly and to dealing with people from all walks of life, including those who were many years older than her.
