Honoria Glossop
Main page / Bibliography / Who is who / Honoria Glossop

Honoria Jane Louise Glossop, daughter of Sir Roderick and Lady Glossop (nee Blatherwick), one-time flame of Bingo Little with whom he falls in love while tutoring her younger brother Oswald at Ditteredge in Scoring Off Jeeves (The Pride of the Woosters is Wounded/The Hero's Reward), where she decides to marry Bertie Wooster and make something of him. Still engaged to Bertie in Sir Roderick Comes To Lunch (Introducing Claude and Eustace/Sir Roderick Comes To Lunch); in The Rummy Affair of Old Biffy and Jeeves and the Yule-Tide Spirit she is engaged to Biffy Biffin. Went to Girton where she went in for every kind of sport and developed the physique of a middleweight catch-as-catch-can wrestler; one of those robust dynamic girls with the muscles of a welterweight and a laugh like a squadron of cavalry charging over a tin bridge, or like waves breaking on a stern and rock-bound coast. Brainy moreover. A ghastly dynamic exhibit who reads Nietzsche courted by Blair Eggleston in Jeeves and the Greasy Bird.
