    Married
    • Meanwhile, news reached her that the cousin, who had been her escort on her first journey to London, had been impressed and conveyed on board a vessel lying in the Thames.
      The intelligence caused her much distress, and induced her to seek an interview with Captain, afterwards Admiral, John Willet Payne, for the purpose of soliciting her cousin's release.
      Incapable of resisting her earnest entreaties, the Captain granted her request, but it was given conditionally, at great cost to herself, for the audience closed with her promise to accept the overtures he made, and led to her first mistake in life.
      In a few months orders arrived for the Captain's vessel to proceed to sea, and the poor girl found herself abandoned in a condition deplorable to relate.
      In these straits she sent for her mother, who remained with her, attending her through her great trouble, and when she parted from her daughter, to revisit the little Welsh village, she carried with her a little child to be reared and tended by old Mrs. Kidd, to whom they always reverted in their hours of need, and the heart of the hard-working old countrywoman was easily moved to aid and help then.
      The infant, a girl, was named Emily, or Emma, after her mother.
      Captain Payne, on becoming Admiral, was appointed Comptroller of the Household of George, Prince of Wales.
      He commanded the squadron in 1795 which brought to England Caroline of Brunswick, the Prince's young bride
