Silvina Otterbourne - born in 1900 - was a poisoner and passionate devotee of gin, just like her mother Eloise, and sole heiress to the Otterbourne fortune which she squandered in India with her lover James Anthony Winston. When he deserted her, she sent her children Sidonie and Alexander back to England - with a hastily written farewell letter and a bottle of gin. Afterwards she remained untraceable until she passed away in 1941.
