About this deal

Fanny was born to a wealthy family in the Victorian era. It appears as though her parents had no sons and that she was an only child. Her father was a successful businessman and her mother Lavinia was a very traditional woman. She believed business was for men and that a lady's duty was to marry and produce an heir. Fanny vehemently disagreed with these views. She had an outstanding education of literacy and arithmetic, and also learnt the skills of needlework and cooking. Account icon An icon in the shape of a person's head and shoulders. It often indicates a user profile. It seems that Fanny's father was a failed man who preferred to gamble more than run the business he inherited. Fanny wanted to help him and be its owner someday. Her mother Lavinia wanted her to get married, though Fanny was not interested and seems to have avoided men a lot. Because of the dramatic manner of her death, a legend has arisen in the local area that Fanny haunts Button House as a ghost - though only Alison and Mike know that she really does. The story is so famous that when real photos of "the Grey Lady" go viral, the Coopers are accused of faking them to cash in on the legend.

When she and George married at Winchester Cathedral, Fanny was "given away by the Marquess of Granby and the guests included the Duchess [of somewhere]". Their marriage occurred sometime between 1888 and 1906. [8] Despite her husband clearly not interested in sex with women, George clearly would have had sex with his wife on at least one occasion, and they must have given birth to at least one child, as they became great grandparents.

It's rare to see her show anything past her rough exterior, although on some occasions she has shown sympathy for others. For example in the episode Perfect Day, in which her traditional views on same-sex marriage are changed once she realizes that if her husband, George, was allowed to marry who he chose, she wouldn't have been killed and she could have married some one who she really loved. Well, times change, don't they? We should know. After all, if George had been free to love as he chose... well, I wouldn't have been murdered and I could have had a husband instead who wanted to know me. And when I say know, I mean given me a really good—" — Perfect Day One day Lavinia's friend Adelaide Pembroke's daughter, Felicity, had become engaged and she was seven years younger than Fanny. Lavinia tried to use this story to persuade Fanny to get married, but to no avail. Not long after, men came and began taking away furniture from their stately home. It was revealed that Fanny's father had been gambling and lost almost all the family's money. Fanny and her parents were on the verge of ending up on the streets. Charles Manners, 6th Duke of Rutland, was Marquess of Granby between 1815 and 1857, so could not be the Marquess who gave her away as that would make Fanny 70 or 80 at her death, when she actually died in her 50s or 60s; the next person to be known as Marquess of Granby was his grandson, Henry Manners, 8th Duke of Rutland, but he did not become Marquess of Granby until 1888, so her marriage must have occurred sometime between that date and 1906, when he became Duke.

Fanny's actual title is unknown. He Came! indicates that she is not born into the Aristocracy and inherited the title of "Lady Button" on marriage. However, the fact that the great-granddaughter of her and George - Heather Button - is known as Lady Heather and was unmarried implies that George (or one of their descendants) later became at least an Earl as the daughters of Viscounts and Barons do not receive the title of Lady, merely The Honorable Miss [first name] [surname] (i.e The Honorable Miss Heather Button). This implies that Fanny is only known as Lady Button because that was her husband's title at the time, with him then possibly being an Earl or higher. There are more than 8 such families in British history, where the title is also the surname, including: Spencer, Russell, Cadogan, Talbot, Fortescue and Grey. You see, I have a cousin, a wealthy family, who has this somewhat wayward son. Do you know the Buttons at all?" - Fanny's Uncle by marriage, He Came! She also shows a considerable amount of sympathy for Nicholas in the episode He Came!, she argues that judging him is unfair and that no one knows the events that led to him becoming homeless, since she and her mother almost became homeless at some point.
