Beatrix Maud Wolmer (née Cecil) (1858-1950) was one of eight children of the Third Marquess and Earl of Salisbury, whose family seat was Hatfield House, Hertfordshire. Dodgson became a regular visitor and photographed the family. In 1871 after one visit Carroll confided in his diary that "the family are really delightful, perfectly at their ease, and kindness itself" and that his stay had been "one of the very pleasantest visits I have ever spent". Dodgson remained in contact with Maud after her marriage in 1883 to William Waldegrave Palmer, Viscount Wolmer.
