Nan Purvis is the first and therefore, legally, the only, wife of Vinculus. Why she has not taken her husband's name is unknown (unless by chance Purvis should happen to be his name, inherited from his unmarried mother?). Nan is addicted to gin, fond of newspaper accounts of hangings and has been married to Vinculus for some twenty to thirty years. Beyond these bare facts, history is silent[30].
