This chapter explores the second phase of Richard Blechynden’s relationship with Charlotte. This phase illustrates the differences of opinion about proper conduct, particularly the conflict between kin and concubines. This chapter discusses the arrival of Blechynden’s seafaring cousin William Marmaduke Blechynden together with his mistress Sally Everell, their son, and some other shipmates at Blechynden’s house. It highlights Charlotte’s conflict with Marmaduke and Sally and Blechynden’s decision to send her away. Though Blechynden’s household was rather vulgar and fractious at that time, it was defined by kinship, judged by friends, and nurtured by servants.

Keywords:   Charlotte, proper conduct, kinship, concubines, William Marmaduke Blechynden, Sally Everell, servants
