    About the Sampler from Nicola Parkman:

    "Our eyes were particularly drawn both to the bottom section with its unusual stitch formation and Edna’s middle name. The Russian name Verenia is an uncommon name in England and means faithful, loyal, and true.

    Edna gave us many clues to follow in her sampler. She finished her sampler on Friday, April 18 in 1884 when she was 10 years old. The sampler was worked as part of her education in Ripponden at Stones School. Ripponden is in Yorkshire, and it is in this great northern country that we found Edna. She was one of five children born to John Nichol and his wife Elizabeth, née Berry, in Soyland in the year 1873. In the 1881 census return the family can be found living at 5 Hey Houses in Soyland, Yorkshire. John was recorded as a corn agent."
