By R. C. Terry | Go to book overview

Q

Quain, Sir Richard ( 1816-98), Physician Extraordinary to Queen Victoria ( 1890); editor of the Dictionary of Medicine ( 1882); Trollope's London physician and fellow member of the Garrick and Cosmopolitan clubs. As a chest specialist, he was called in regarding Trollope's chronic shortness of breath. After Trollope's death, he confided to T. H. Escott that Trollope's extreme sensitivity to the opinion of others produced in him 'a genial air of grievance against the world in general, and those who personally valued him in particular' (quoted I & R119). RCT

Quaverdale, Mr, literary hack and friend of Harry Annesley. A writer for The Coming Hour, Quaverdale 'made his five or six hundred a year in a rattling, loose, uncertain sort of fashion, and was,--so thought Harry Annesley,--the dirtiest man of his acquaintance' (XXII). MSF MT

Quickenham, Richard, successful, hardworking barrister, brother-in-law to the Fenwicks. He discovers illegalities in the erection of a Methodist chapel on vicarage land and thus provides the impetus for its removal, much to the chagrin of Mr Puddleham and the Marquis of Trowbridge. VB SRB

Quin, Lady Mary, daughter of the Earl of Kilfenora whose hospitality and charms have little effect on Fred Neville. So her letters to his aunt, in which she relays gossip about the O'Hara ladies, are not entirely disinterested. EE AWJ

Quin Castle, about three miles (5 km) from the coast in Co. Clare; home of the Earl of Kilfenora and his daughters. EE AWJ

Quiverful, Letitia, long-suffering, plain- speaking wife of Revd Quiverful of Puddingdale. Pleading their fourteen children, she enlists Mrs Proudie's aid in gaining her husband's appointment as warden of Hiram's Hospital, thus precipitating a major conflict between her patron and Mr Slope. BT, LCB NCS

Quiverful, Mr, rector of Puddingdale whose large family (twelve children in W, fourteen in BT) stretches his modest income to the breaking point. Honest, painstaking, and drudging, he sides with Mr Slope in hopes of appointment to the lucrative wardenship of Hiram's Hospital, though he has no desire to hurt his friend Mr Harding. A member of the clerical commission in The Last Chronicle of Barset. BT NCS
