—Ernestine about Philip Roberts.

Visit at Windy Poplars


Personality

Ernestine was a very grim old lady, fond of gossip and always very doleful.

Physical appearance

"Cousin Ernestine was not beautiful and it was extremely doubtful if she ever had been. She had a dry, pinched little face, faded, pale blue eyes, several badly placed moles and a whining voice. She wore a rusty black dress and a decrepit neck-piece of Hudson seal which she would not remove even at the table, because she was afraid of draughts."
Anne of Windy Poplars, Second Year, Chapter 8

Etymology

Ernestine is a female given name of Old German origin and means serious or battle to the death.
