Miss Ricardo (top left & right) (by Camille Silvy)

Miss Ricardo was probably Albert Ricardo’s sister, Emily Ricardo, who did not marry. The Ricardos were a very large family – Albert’s grandfather, Abraham Ricardo, had at least 15 children, most of whom married and had families, so Albert had a great many cousins and, among them, a number of other “Miss Ricardos”.
