About the Sampler from Nicola Parkman:

"At only nine years of age Ann finished her delightful sampler. The young girl chose a delicious palette, she had a good eye selecting very soft yet colourful threads. She diligently worked at her sampler covering her linen with an assortment of motifs including two billy goats. 

The verse she carefully stitched is the first of the nine Beatitudes of Matthew 5:3. “Blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the kingdom of heaven”. We do not know if Ann was rich or poor in spirit, with the passing of time all that remains today is her childhood needlework."
