Muriel Foster (Ivy Cottage) is remembered fondly in Aldbourne – not least because she used to pay for the children of the village to have a free ride at the fair (pictured here with George Scarrott). Muriel was also a member of the Wiltshire Archaeological and Natural History Society, alongside Miss Emily Sophia Todd (Hampstead Cottage) and Major Arthur Lockyer Ingpen (One Ash).
Muriel Foster was not a Nugent – but both her brother Osbern and her sister Gladys married Nugents! She was aunt or great aunt to many Nugent nephews and nieces, as well as to Fosters, Fowlers and Robertsons, some of whom lived in Aldbourne, the village she chose as her home.
