Her eldest son by her first marriage, John, 10th Baron Carbery, was an Irish nationalist and member of the Kenyan Happy Valley set. Her eldest son by her second marriage, Christopher Sandford, was proprietor of the Golden Cockerel Press.

She is the subject of the second half of the book "Happy Memories" (Faith Press, 1960), by her sister, Constance Toulmin. She died at Eye Manor, Herefordshire in 1949. (Wikipedia).

The master with his men, the mistress with her maids, all worked in happy unity. The four little girls, growing up in this contented atmosphere, dreamed of saints and fairies. Their real and their dream world fused into an idyllic background for growing, learning and loving.
