Born Leonora Stewart, she took as her second husband in 1899 Leopold Jenner, son of William Jenner who was physician to Queen Victoria. And in 1902, Leopold bought Avebury Manor in Wiltshire and the couple invested their labours in bringing the house back to its former glory, Leopold took charge of the estate and Leonora tasked herself with furnishings and embroideries. Here is one example of her neo-Stuart works, a casket signed and dated 1940. The front panels show scenes from Abraham and Isaac and is smothered with fruits, flowers, insects and birds - many three dimensional - which you might be able to see from the top of the casket itself. Leonora did not confine herself to Avebury alone. When Leopold's brother, Sir Walter Jenner, purchased Lyte's Cary Manor in 1907 (now a National Trust property) to rescue it from ruin, Leonora set to work there also and you can still see there in the Great Parlour an impressive stumpwork mirror frame that she embroidered. However, many of her items have been sold and you may just possibly come across them - so keep your eyes peeled!
