Edith came from an aristocratic family. Her dad was Sir George Sitwell, 4th Baronet of Renishaw Hall, and her mother was Lady Ida Emily Augusta Denison, daughter of the Earl of Londerborough. Her mum claimed she was royal from decent through female lines from the Plantagenets. I'm fairly embarassed because when I read that, I had no idea what Plantagenet meant, but I have since learnt that The Plantagenets are a family from a Royal House founded my Henry II and are mostly french (I think!)
