罗莎蒙德问及是否想在伦敦生活



伊迪丝·佩勒姆(Edith Pelham),赫克瑟姆侯爵夫人(Marchioness of Hexham),原姓克劳利(Crawley),生于1892年[1],是罗伯特科拉·克劳利的第二个女儿,玛丽·塔尔博特西比尔·布兰森(已故)的姊妹,维奥莱特·克劳利的外孙女,汤姆·布兰森亨利·塔尔博特马修·克劳利(已故)的妻姨。她与已故恋人迈克尔·格雷格森有一个非婚生女儿玛丽戈尔德。1925年,她嫁给了赫克瑟姆侯爵七世赫伯特·佩勒姆

外貌

伊迪丝有着金红色的头发,精致的嘴唇,奶油般的肤色与苗条的身材。她充满魅力,穿着时尚,尽管她的姐姐时常取笑她的外貌。

性格

伊迪丝一生都在为自己的才能得到赏识而奋斗,却总是遭遇失败与打击。她的感情(帕特里克,斯特兰,格里格森,伯蒂)多以失败或结束告终。由于经历了一系列苦难与悲痛,她常常被描述为“可怜的伊迪丝(Poor Edith)”。不过,尽管经此总总,她最终还是觅得所爱伯蒂·佩勒姆并嫁给了他,成为新的赫克瑟姆侯爵夫人。多年的不满激化了伊迪丝与姐姐玛丽之间的争斗与矛盾,在玛丽面前,伊迪丝总是展现出她刻薄,嫉妒与无情的一面。

伊迪丝是一个善于渡过难关者(在某种程度上这意味着是一个糟糕的计划者),无论现实际遇如何,她仍然继续对爱情与家庭怀有梦想,并不懈追求。伊迪丝与那个时代处在她地位上的任何女性一样,没有让阶级差异成为帮助他人或者证明自己价值的阻碍。她学习驾驶汽车,自愿到德雷克家庭农场劳作;唐顿庄园临时改造成战时疗养院时,她尽心尽责地在精神上给予伤者照顾与关怀;她也为把威廉·梅森转移回唐顿而努力,并在他弥留之际亲自照顾他;她在杂志上撰写的专栏十分受欢迎,并最终不顾家人的反对接管了整个杂志社。时光把伊迪丝打磨得愈发柔软与温润,她告别了过去那个势利的自己,更加珍视家庭的价值,在事业上更具魄力与主见,最难能可贵的是,她甚至努力修复与伤害过自己的姐姐的关系,两人最终冰释前嫌。

接管《素描》杂志后,伊迪丝变得更加独立了,也更多地参与到唐顿庄园外的事务中。在与杂志社主编的冲突中,她渐渐提升着自己对商业世界的决断与见识。

生平

1912年-1914年

伊迪丝·克劳利小姐是格兰瑟姆伯爵与夫人的二女儿,生于1892年。一开始,伊迪丝常常被人当做“被遗忘的”那个,因为她没有姐姐玛丽美丽漂亮与能言善道,也没有妹妹西比尔那样活泼勇敢与充满热情。伊迪丝真心爱着继承人帕特里克·克劳利,但却没有机会得到他的感情因为玛丽决定去追求他,这加剧了两人之间的竞争。人人都赞同玛丽与帕特里克的婚事,以保住当前家庭的财产,尽管玛丽并不喜欢帕特里克。在起初尝试过追求马修·克劳利后,她开始了一段与安东尼·斯特兰爵士的情感。安东尼几乎快要向伊迪丝求婚时,玛丽向他暗示伊迪丝和他在一起只是消遣而已,于是他改变了主意。彼时安东尼·斯特兰似乎是伊迪丝获得美满婚姻的最后希望,而玛丽故意毁掉了这次机会作为报复,因为之前伊迪丝曾写信给伦敦土耳其大使馆揭发凯末尔·帕穆克之死的真相。

1916年-1919年

伊迪丝走出了自己的舒适区。她向家庭司机汤姆·布兰森学习驾驶,成为克劳利家族第一个会开车的成员。一战爆发后,伊迪丝利用自己的驾驶技术到当地一家农场帮忙开拖拉机,令农场主约翰·德雷克困惑又感激。她开始与他开始了一段感情,最后甚至接吻了,而他俩都没发现德雷克的妻子看到了这一幕。不久后她收到一封信,告诉她农场再也不需要她了。一开始伊迪丝为此感到伤心,因为她觉得自己似乎是有目的到农场工作去的。她决定向妹妹西比尔求助如何应对当前的状况,西比尔鼓励她到疗养院帮忙。伊迪丝受到了鼓舞,但帮助西比尔与其它护士照顾伤者也让她直面战争的残忍与恐怖,在这个过程中她变得越来越富有同情心,并受到了一位休假期间来唐顿拜访的将军的赞扬。一位来到唐顿疗养的伤残老兵声称自己是已故的帕特里克·克劳利,伊迪丝相信了他的说法。他对她说,他一直知道她爱着他,一旦这个家庭重新接纳他,他便会向她求婚。伊迪丝相信了这位“帕特里克”,然而大多数家庭成员并不认同。有一天帕特里克突然离去,给伊迪丝留下一张纸条,上面写着“亲爱的伊迪丝,这太难了。抱歉”。落款是“P·戈登”。伊迪丝认为是家人的不信任致使他离开,留下了伤心的泪水。

2011圣诞特辑

战后,伊迪丝想要重新开始与安东尼·斯特兰爵士的关系,但安东尼拒绝了,因为他受了严重的伤致使手臂残废,不愿拖累伊迪丝的生活。

1920年

安东尼·斯特兰爵士终于想伊迪丝小姐求婚,随后两人订婚。一些克劳利家庭成员并不赞成这门婚事,但为了伊迪丝的幸福仍然同意了。两人在即将举行婚礼时,安东尼思量再三,还是临阵逃婚了。被抛弃的伊迪丝相信自己这辈子都摆脱不了老处女的命运。过了一段时间后,伊迪丝收到了给一份杂志写作的邀请,虽然伊迪丝自己对此很感兴趣,但她的家人除了马修与汤姆外都不赞同。她想要重新开始生活,便接受了《素描》杂志编辑迈克尔·格雷格森的邀约,在这本杂志上开设了关于现代女性所面临问题的专栏。不久后,格雷格森喜欢上了伊迪丝。然而,他是有妇之夫,并且妻子长年患有精神疾病,按照英国婚姻法无法离异[2]。得知此事后,伊迪丝想要辞去自己的新工作,但在格雷格森的请求下,她又开始重新考虑。

2012圣诞特辑

克劳利一家去苏格兰度假,迈克尔·格雷格森决定跟着伊迪丝。他在距离唐伊阁城堡不远的地方住下,声称自己是趁假期来写生与钓鱼的,这引起了玛丽与马修的警惕。科拉想见见格雷格森,便与罗伯特邀请他来唐伊阁用餐。晚餐时,伊迪丝询问格雷格森为何在场,他表达了对她的爱意,也是为什么会跟来的原因,他想要她的家庭接受他。伊迪丝说,他俩在一起不会有好结局。下午,马修和格雷格森一起钓鱼,经过了一段时间的了解,马修认为格雷格森对伊迪丝的爱是真心诚意的。不过,在得知格雷格森有一个无法离异的精神病妻子后,马修认为他追求伊迪丝是错误的,并让他当晚去对她告别。格雷格森如此做了,但令他意外的是,伊迪丝告诉他,她不想这是最后一次见面,因为她也的确爱着他。

1922年

苏格兰之旅六个月后,迈克尔与伊迪丝的关系更加亲密了。情人节时,他给伊迪丝寄了一张贺卡,邀请她来伦敦参加一个派对,好把她介绍给自己文艺界的朋友。两人在火车站见面。派对期间,伊迪丝与迈克尔独自相处的一刻,差一点就接吻成功,不过被另一位宾客打断。

随后,伊迪丝独自跟着迈克尔到标准餐厅用餐,他讲述了的离婚计划:在德国,他可以在伴侣患有精神疾病的情况下被批准离婚。这意味着他可能要成为一名德国公民。伊迪丝听说迈克尔愿意为了她而移民德国,尤其还是在一战刚刚过后,感到非常惊喜。随后,两人不顾在餐厅会被看到的风险而接吻了。

迈克尔与伊迪丝在他的公寓。

伊迪丝离开伦敦回唐顿前,迈克尔告诉她,尽管他已经开始着手争取德国国籍,但他也希望在他们结婚之前得到她父亲的赞成,因为只有这样两人才可能有稳固的将来。伊迪丝建议他去造访唐顿,但他对此有一点点担忧。她提议让他去参加唐顿即将举办的一个派对,他同意了。在派对上,伊迪丝试着让父亲多跟他交流。

随后,迈克尔准备前往慕尼黑去完成入籍手续与离婚事宜,离开前,他给了伊迪丝一份文件让她签字,把自己的财产给予伊迪丝更多控制权。他开始亲吻她,她最终没有拒绝,两人当晚共度良宵。

罗莎蒙德质问伊迪丝。

不巧伊迪丝的姑妈罗莎蒙德·佩恩斯威克的女仆发现她凌晨六点归家,罗莎蒙德前去质问。伊迪丝帮着迈克尔说话,坚信他是真心的,并不对和他共度一晚感到后悔。罗莎蒙德警告她说总有一天她可能会后悔的,因为不是所有的事情都会一成不变。

迈克尔前往德国后,时光飞逝,伊迪丝却没收到他的任何消息,也不知道发生了什么。她的母亲一开始安慰她说可能他太忙了,而父亲则相信迈克尔一定没事,维奥莱特也劝她耐心一点。尽管如此,伊迪丝渐渐不再对见到迈克尔抱有希望,但仍然想知道他发生了什么事。

伊迪丝没有告诉母亲迈克尔去德国的真实原因,只说他是去旅游。随后她去伦敦见一位戈德曼医生。伊迪丝的担忧与日俱增,科拉安慰女儿说如果有什么糟糕的事情发生了,他们一定会有所耳闻的。一晚,伊迪丝收到戈德曼医生的一封来信,此时她才意识到自己怀上了迈克尔的孩子。

罗伯特见伊迪丝整日忧心忡忡,试图安慰她,但伊迪丝并不领情。罗莎蒙德问她为何烦恼,伊迪丝坦承了自己怀孕的事实,甚至考虑堕胎以免被家庭逐出,尽管自己仍然爱着迈克尔也想要这个孩子。罗莎蒙德反对伊迪丝的决定,但还是陪她去了诊所。但在最后一刻,伊迪丝看到诊所里的另一位女人在那里哭泣,最终改变了主意。

到当地集市展时,家里人仍然不知道伊迪丝的困境。罗莎蒙德建议伊迪丝前往欧洲大陆,借着“学习法语”之名到瑞士去把孩子生下来,然后找人收养。伊迪丝对这个计划不太乐意,因为她想成为自己孩子生命与成长的一部分。

罗莎蒙德到唐顿参加集市时,提到自己可能出国,并把伊迪丝带上。玛丽对此起疑,认为伊迪丝从未想过学习法语,只怕是借此去寻找迈克尔。汤姆提醒伊迪丝目前德国的状况很严峻,伊迪丝感谢了他的好意。维奥莱特看穿了这个计划,不过她赞同罗莎蒙德,并承诺替伊迪丝保密并支持她。伊迪丝仍然感到很绝望,开始觉得老天就是不想让她幸福。

2013圣诞特辑

1923年夏,伊迪丝在日内瓦生下一名女孩,并把她留给一个家庭收养。不过她无法忍受长期与女儿分离,终于还是不够姑妈和外祖母的反对,决定重返瑞士。接回女儿后,伊迪丝将她交给庄园的一位佃农蒂莫西·德鲁妻子收养。她再见迈克尔的希望愈发渺茫,不过得知他把自己所有财产权都委托给了自己。

1924年

伊迪丝频繁到紫杉农场去见女儿玛丽戈尔德。她的来访令玛吉·德鲁疑心她对自己丈夫与玛丽戈尔德有所依恋。德鲁先生随后约见伊迪丝,告诉她自己妻子的怀疑。伊迪丝回答说“总比真正的原因要好”,无意向德鲁透露了玛丽戈尔德是她的亲生女儿。

在视查女仆的时候,休斯太太发现了一本迈克尔·格雷格森寄错的德语启蒙书,并将其交还伊迪丝。伊迪丝看着女儿的照片与书上迈克尔的签名,不禁悲从中来,把书扔开。书落到火旁,引发了火灾。幸运的是,托马斯·巴罗正在走廊巡查,闻到了烟味,冲进房间把她背到了安全处。蒂莫西·德鲁带领的火警队赶来扑灭了大火。由于卧室被烧毁,伊迪丝只得睡在她父亲的更衣室。

伊迪丝前去感谢德鲁先生,他说他想出一个法子让伊迪丝与玛丽戈尔德有更多机会在一起,没想到休斯太太在一旁无意听到他们的对话。随后她与安娜清理伊迪丝房间时发现她枕头下藏着玛丽戈尔德婴儿时期的照片。安娜把照片给了休斯太太,休斯太太将其保管起来没有声张。

德鲁先生建议伊迪丝成为玛丽戈尔德的赞助人,甚至教母如果有可能的话。但他的妻子表示反对,声称她的姐姐已经在玛丽戈尔德洗礼时被指定为教母了。不知道事实真相的德鲁太太觉得伊迪丝把玛丽戈尔德当一个玩具娃娃看待,而以她这样的家庭出身,总有一天会对玛丽戈尔德失去兴趣。德鲁坚称她绝不会这样,但德鲁太太并不相信。罗伯特认为伊迪丝此举是因为她需要有个人去爱,因为如今大家都默认迈克尔·格雷格森已经不在人世了。

一天,伊迪丝同意玛吉·德鲁不在时来看望玛丽戈尔德,玛吉回来时发现房间没人,只见到她丈夫,伊迪丝与玛丽戈尔德在一起看猪。伊迪丝离开后,玛吉坚持认为伊迪丝不能再接近他们的孩子了,她甚至指责丈夫对伊迪丝过于软弱。

随后,德鲁前往唐顿,克劳利一家正在招待俄国难民。伊迪丝承认她可能惹恼了玛吉,德鲁告诉她,她现在必须离玛丽戈尔德远一点了,不是永远离开,只是目前的情况下她需要暂时远离。伊迪丝听到这个消息非常伤心,回到自己房间独自哭泣。当罗莎蒙德与维奥莱特发现伊迪丝把玛丽戈尔德从瑞士带回来后,提议把她送往法国的一所寄宿学校。伊迪丝害怕与女儿再次分离,劝外祖母说一定法子有让玛丽戈尔德不离开她的生活。此举失败后,她立即开始自行计划方法。

伊迪丝收到了迈克尔已经死亡的消息,决定离开唐顿,此时全家都去参加赛马了,只有汤姆·布兰森在,伊迪丝对他告别,但没有解释为什么离开以及去哪儿。记者伊迪丝去了德鲁家的小屋,向德鲁太太解释说她是玛丽戈尔德的亲生母亲,并拿出她出生证明的副本(本来罗莎蒙德建议她签一个假名,但她仍然签了真名,因为她知道自己有可能有一样需要证据)。尽管德鲁太太一开始无法接受这个事实,但最后还是让伊迪丝带着玛丽戈尔德离开了,临走前还把泰迪熊给了她。随后伊迪丝前往伦敦(推测)。

科拉从德鲁太太处得知了伊迪丝与玛丽戈尔德的真实关系,对罗莎蒙德与维奥莱特对她隐瞒此事感到非常愤怒,尤其是得知正是她俩把玛丽戈尔德送走的建议迫使伊迪丝离开。她坚称一定要找到伊迪丝,听听她的想法。

罗斯的追求者阿提库斯·奥尔德里奇建议他们联系迈克尔出版社的办公室,该出版社被伊迪丝继承了。果然,他们在那里发现了伊迪丝。她很烦恼科拉知道了真相,而科拉也很失望伊迪丝利用了德鲁太太。伊迪丝坚持不肯回去,科拉威胁在她的员工面前公开讨论她的情况,伊迪丝只得建议她们到附近的一家茶室去谈谈。

伊迪丝表示,她原本打算前往美国,放弃现在的身份,给自己编造一个去世的丈夫,改头换面重新生活。但最后因为两个原因没有执行这个计划,一是她希望玛丽戈尔德在英国长大,二是她不想迈克尔的杂志毁在自己手上。她现在考虑以孤儿与教女的身份领养玛丽戈尔德。科拉却要她以德鲁一家无法负担养育朋友的女儿为由,把女儿带回唐顿。罗莎蒙德表示反对,但伊迪丝同意了,条件是罗伯特与玛丽不可知道此事。

玛丽反对这个计划,但伊迪丝仍旧成功地“领养”了自己的女儿,开始在唐顿养育她。因为伊迪丝对玛丽戈尔德过分的喜爱以及她和格雷格森相似的长相,罗伯特很快就猜到了事实真相,但科拉要他对此事保密。罗伯特同意了,并决定要疼爱自己的新外孙女。

2014圣诞特辑

克劳利一家来到诺森伯兰郡布兰克斯特城堡度假,罗伯特向伊迪丝坦承自己已经知道玛丽戈尔德的身世,并保证一定会尽力对她好,既是为了伊迪丝也是为了格雷格森。伊迪丝显然被父亲的善意感动了,接着汤姆也向她表明自己同样猜出了玛丽戈尔德是谁,也同意为她保密。

伊迪丝与布兰克斯特城堡的代理人伯蒂·佩勒姆成为了好友。

1925年

伊迪丝收到自己杂志社编辑斯金纳先生的来电,科拉问她是否出了什么问题,伊迪丝回答道“总是在出问题”,因为斯金纳先生不喜欢为女人工作。伊迪丝与罗莎蒙德参观了迈克尔留给她的伦敦公寓,并讨论了伊迪丝的未来。伊迪丝和家人一起拜访了马勒顿庄园

伊迪丝再度来到伦敦,这一次斯金纳先生制造了更多麻烦。不过家里却发生了更大的麻烦,她的姐姐玛丽带着玛丽戈尔德去参加莫尔顿肉畜展,他们在农场见到了德鲁太太,在玛丽戈尔德离开紫杉农场后几个月,她仍然无法忘怀。伊迪丝随后也和全家一起来到畜展,却发现玛丽戈尔德失踪了。德鲁先生怀疑是自己的妻子把玛丽戈尔德带回家了,因为他们家的卡车也同样不见了。伊迪丝开车带着父母与德鲁先生来到紫杉农场,果然发现女儿在那里。找回女儿后伊迪丝无比开心,但德鲁一家却不得不离开紫杉农场,伊迪丝认为这样也好,免得将来产生更多麻烦。

伊迪丝返回伦敦处理《素描》杂志相关事宜。她听说文章需要在凌晨四点前付梓而斯金纳先生却毫所作为,下决心解雇了他。幸运的是,她遇到了一位旧识伯蒂·佩勒姆,两人曾在布兰克斯特城堡跳过舞。伯蒂请她出来小酌一席,但她却表示有事在身。得知何事后,伯蒂主动提供帮助,并帮他处理杂志社事务到深夜。在长时间的工作后,杂志文章终于按时排版好并送交印刷。伊迪丝对伯蒂的帮助感激不尽,两人喝咖啡时聊了聊伊迪丝当编辑的意向。接着,伊迪丝参加了卡森先生休斯太太的婚礼。婚礼上,汤姆突然出现并决定留在唐顿,伊迪丝和其它家人一样感到欣喜。随后,她为自己的杂志挑选任命了一位女编辑

伊迪丝与伯蒂·佩勒姆在伦敦重逢,遂邀请他来自己的公寓品尝餐前鸡尾酒。两人相谈甚欢,情到深处时伯蒂不禁吻了她。伯蒂向伊迪丝承认了自己对她的感情,伊迪丝也感到十分惊喜。

伊迪丝邀请伯蒂参加为当地诊疗所筹款的唐顿庄园开放日,并且亲自开车去接他。在庄园里,伊迪丝带伯蒂去育儿室见了西比乔治与玛丽戈尔德。

伊迪丝邀请自己的新编辑劳拉·埃德蒙兹来和自己的家人以及伯蒂·佩勒姆一起观看亨利·塔尔博特布鲁克兰的赛车。比赛过程中发生了车祸,导致亨利好友查理·罗杰斯的死亡。比赛后,克劳利一家与客人们在罗莎蒙德的家中用餐。午夜后,伊迪丝与伯蒂在客厅聊天,此时他向她求婚。伊迪丝对此感到高兴,但因为玛丽戈尔德的事情,她无法马上给出答复,甚至也不能把原因说出来。两人接吻后,伯蒂便离开了。

伊迪丝在是否要接受伯蒂·佩勒姆的问题上思前虑后,因为他的堂兄彼得在丹吉尔不幸去世后,他成为了新的赫克瑟姆侯爵。人人都对伊迪丝即将成为侯爵夫人感到高兴,除了玛丽,她还计划报复她的妹妹。伊迪丝不敢把玛丽戈尔德的真相告诉伯蒂,但玛丽“一不小心”迫使伊迪丝不得不对伯蒂承认玛丽戈尔德是她亲生女儿。伯蒂起身离去,并叫出租车准备离开。临走时他取消了与伊迪丝的订婚,因为他不能接受伊迪丝试图欺骗自己,无法娶一个对他不信任的人。尽管如此,他们还是互相祝福对方前程安好,心碎的伊迪丝觉得前去伦敦。在她打包行李之时,玛丽来到她的卧室,以自己不知道伊迪丝还没告诉伯蒂玛丽戈尔德的事情为由试图道歉。愤怒的伊迪丝再也抑制不住自己的感情,用非常苛刻的字眼抨击了玛丽。随后,伊迪丝出发前往伦敦,并顺路载上了汤姆,她觉得伯蒂再也不会回到自己身边了。

回到伦敦的杂志社后,伊迪丝见到了自己的秘书与新聘新聘编辑,她们得知常常向杂志投稿的一位作者,卡桑德拉·琼斯即将来办公室拜访。三人都不确定这名人士是不是“真的”卡桑德拉·琼斯,所以约定好如果觉得此人是真的,就说出暗号“香蕉”。结果,卡桑德拉·琼斯的真实身份竟然是维奥莱特·克劳利的管家塞普蒂默斯·斯普拉特

伊迪丝回到唐顿参加玛丽与亨利·塔尔博特的婚礼,并与玛丽冰释前嫌。婚礼过后,伊迪丝微笑着看着西比乔治与玛丽戈尔德在自己妹妹西比尔的墓旁追逐玩耍。.

2015圣诞特辑

在玛丽的精心策划下,伊迪丝与伯蒂在丽兹酒店会面。伊迪丝再次看到伯蒂,一开始很是失望,因为伯蒂伤透了她的心。然而伯蒂向她道歉,并声称自己仍然爱着她,希望她回到他身边并嫁给他。他对她说,即使玛丽没有给他打电话,他也会回来找她,另外他的母亲还不知道他俩分手了。伊迪丝问伯蒂是否能够承受玛丽戈尔德可能带来了流言蜚语以及和他母亲的冲突。即使如此,伯蒂仍然想要伊迪丝回来,不过计划把玛丽戈尔德的事情瞒着他母亲。两人重新订婚,伯蒂要求伊迪丝与她的父母到布兰克斯特城堡做客,以见见他那难以对付的母亲。佩勒姆太太振振有词地展现了自己的道德标准,并期望自己的儿子能达到要求,同时也表达了自己对上一任赫克瑟姆侯爵的厌恶,声称他缺乏道德感。佩勒姆太太的言行令格兰瑟姆伯爵夫妇感到震惊。

伊迪丝决定告诉佩勒姆太太自己的过去。得知伊迪丝有一个非婚生女儿之后,佩勒姆太太对这桩婚姻提出了反对,但伯蒂无论如何执意要娶伊迪丝。随后晚餐期间,伯蒂计划在一群贵族面前宣布与伊迪丝的订婚。佩勒姆太太本打算口出恶言,正在此时,罗伯特提醒她这样做的代价是失去伯蒂,因此她最终保持了沉默,并表达了对儿子和伊迪丝的祝福。晚餐结束后,佩勒姆太太称赞了伊迪丝的诚实,并没有为了自己的名誉而欺骗她。

回到后,伊迪丝对玛丽的安排表示了感谢,让她与伯蒂得以重归于好。1925年的新年前夜,伯蒂与伊迪丝终于在圣米迦勒教堂举办了婚礼,所有人都前来参加,包括伯蒂的母亲。随后,伯蒂与伊迪丝出发去度蜜月,新年钟声敲响之时,他们在离开的车中深情拥吻。

关系

家庭关系

帕特里克·克劳利

尽管在帕特里克死前,计划嫁给他的是玛丽,但伊迪丝才对他有真情实感,并为他的死感到悲恸。尚不明确帕特里克是否也爱着伊迪丝(帕特里克·戈登是否是帕特里克·克劳利将永远无法确证),但安娜·贝茨曾对贝茨先生说过,对伊迪丝来说爱上一个不爱自己的人一定十分难受。这和玛丽的反应形成鲜明的对比,她对解除这份无爱的婚约出来感到解脱,甚至对穿黑衣为帕特里克服丧感到不耐烦。

马修·克劳利

在玛丽一开始拒绝马修后,伊迪丝决定去追求马修。不过马修眼中只有玛丽,很显然对伊迪丝的行动毫无兴趣。玛丽重拾对马修爱意之后,伊迪丝又一次独自一人了。

马修与玛丽结婚后,把伊迪丝当妹妹看待。他鼓励她成为一名记者,and then tells Michael Gregson he will not let her slide into a life of scandal (meaning become Michael's lover) "without lifting a finger to stop it" after learning about his insane wife, but also says Michael should use the Gillies Ball to say a proper good-bye to Edith, telling Michael he owed her that.

Matthew told Edith he would not tell Mary about Michael, but hoped Gregson made it clear what had to happen, meaning he had to stop pursuing her. Edith told Matthew "we both know what happens next" which he did not know actually meant she had decided her relationship with Michael was not over.

安东尼·斯特兰

伊迪丝与安东尼·斯特兰爵士

Originally invited to Downton as a suitor for Mary, Edith enjoyed Sir Anthony's company. To her delight, Sir Anthony is more interested in her than in Mary. They go on many drives together in Season 1. Yet when Sir Anthony was looking for Edith in order to propose, Mary takes revenge for the exposure of the scandal regarding Kemal Pamuk by making him believe the love is unrequited. In the Christmas special, a now injured Strallan forbids Edith from thinking they might be together, because he's far too old, and a cripple. She disagrees, and says that she "won't give up on anyone who calls her lovely." In the third season, she tells him she would like to see more of him, to which he replies he should like that very much, probably more than he ought to. He also tells her at one point that she has given him back his life, and she kisses him on the cheek. Unfortunately, her grandmother does not approve and tells her father to tell Strallan to stay away. Strallan is willing, but Edith is devastated. She seeks solace from her American grandmother Martha who is visiting at the time. Martha and Edith manage to persuade Robert to relent and give the marriage the go-ahead. A lavish wedding ceremony is laid on for the two of them, but at the altar Strallan chooses not to go through with it. Still at the altar, Edith is stunned, apparently unable to cope, when her grandmother Violet steps in and says that by abandoning the wedding Strallan had done "the only sensible thing ... in months". Edith is initially devastated by this experience, and seems to think she will always be alone, saying, "I’m a useful spinster, good at helping out. That is my role."

|-|Sybil= Edith gets along with Sybil better than her eldest sister Mary. Edith does not initially agree with Sybil's politics in Series One, because she believes they will cause her harm in the end. In Series Two, she asks Sybil for advice on what to do to make her feel useful again. Sybil suggests finding her strength, and Edith becomes a convalescent helper. Edith went with Mary and Anna to try and bring Sybil back to Downton when she elopes with Branson. Together with her sister Mary, she attended Sybil and Tom's wedding in Dublin. When Sybil dies, Edith is horrified and left heartbroken. She, in honour of her younger sister's memory, encourages Tom and his newly-born daughter Sybbie to stay at Downton for as long as they need.

|-|Mary= Edith has always shown that she was jealous of Mary, because she was beautiful and easy in conversation, and thus received the majority of the attention. Edith tried to make life hard for her in season one. After Edith had been out competed for the attention of Patrick Crawley and Matthew Crawley. Edith challenges Mary that she cannot take Sir Anthony's attention. Mary proves her wrong and in retaliation Edith exposes her sister's Kemal Pamuk scandal, by writing a letter to the Turkish Embassy. In season two the sisters seem to get along a lot better with each other, probably as a result of their newly developed maturity. They perform in a talent show for the convalescents together, to which all the family is surprised. Edith plays the piano and Mary sings.

On Edith's wedding day, Mary acknowledged that they had not gotten along well in the past but that she wished Edith happiness on this day, which brought out a smile in Edith (especially when Mary gave her a sisterly kiss). Mary, like the rest of the family, was genuinely upset and heartbroken for Edith when Sir Anthony Strallan jilted her at the altar. When Sybil died Edith asked Mary if their relationship would ever get better. Mary doubted it would, but that for now they should "love each other now, as sisters should." They shared a hug.

Mary supported Edith's decision to become a journalist, but treats her editor Michael Gregson with contempt and suspicion. Following Matthew's death, Mary becomes cold toward Edith again, later saying her sister is "about as mysterious as a bucket." In 1923, when presented with the possibility of sharing a room with Edith in Grantham House, Mary said she would rather sleep on the roof than share with Edith.

Edith receives an offer to write a newspaper column from Gregson. Eventually an attraction develops between them, but Edith soon learns he is already married. She confronts him and insists on resigning, repulsed by a married man flirting with her. However, Gregson explains to her that his wife, whom he loved very much, has been in an asylum for years and no longer knows him. When she asks him why he has not divorced her, he explains he cannot because his wife cannot be deemed responsible in the eyes of the law simply because she is a lunatic; she is neither the guilty nor innocent party.[2]After he professes how much it means to him to read her column and meet her, she stays on.

She meets him again in Scotland in September 1921 while holidaying there with her family at Duneagle Castle. Mary and Matthew then disagree over his motives for pursuing Edith. When Michael reveals he loves her she insists that she cannot see a happy ending with him. Nevertheless she does ask Matthew of his opinion of Michael after the two men had gone deer stalking, and defends Michael against Mary's cruelty towards him. While fly fishing, Michael confides in Matthew about his wife. Their conversation convinces Matthew of Gregson's deep love and honesty towards Edith, but he finds the prospect of Gregson's future liaison with Edith socially unacceptable. Matthew tells them that he will say nothing for now, but that if they pursue a relationship he cannot remain silent. He effectively instructs Gregson to put an end to his courtship and say good-bye to Edith. True to his word, Matthew does not tell anyone. Gregson does try to say goodbye to Edith, but she insists that it is not their last evening, that she is now absolutely sure that she loves him.

Edith and Michael kiss.
She reunites with him again in 1922 at King's Cross after the family's mourning period for Matthew's death. She not only continues writing for the Sketch, but she dines with Michael at the Criterion and later visits him at his flat. At a party there she meets many of his literary friends, including author Virginia Woolf.

When she learns of his plans to become a German citizen in order to divorce his wife and marry her, she is worried that people will hate him, citing that the royal family themselves had renounced their German heritage. Nevertheless he is undeterred, especially when she assures him she will love him more than ever. She then asks Michael to come to Downton and get to know her family even more. Then she returns to Downton again, but admitting "it is getting harder to say no" - meaning to stay the night with him. She eventually does stay the night with him, creeping back into her Aunt Rosamund's house in the early hours of the morning. She is seen by a servant who tells Rosamund. Rosamud then confronts her, warning her to be careful but promises she will not tell anyone.

After Michael leaves for Germany, Edith doesn't hear from him again. She soon learns no one else knows where he is, with both his office and the police looking for him. She worries for his safety, but wants to know the truth. Later she admits to her father however when they may be close to learning the truth, as long as she does not know for certain the truth "in a way I'm keeping him alive. I hate to let go of that." She is in despair when she hears he has died. She inherits his publishing company, and raises their daughter.

|-|Marigold= Edith loves her daughter very deeply. After Michael disappeared following their one-night stand, Edith secretly went to a doctor in London, and later received confirmation that she was in the first trimester of pregnancy. Wishing not to be an outcast to her family and society, she decides that she will have an abortion even though she loves Michael and wants his child. After seeing a woman cry at the clinic however, she decides that she loves Michael enough to keep the child.

She is presented with the proposition of giving birth in another country then having the child adopted, a thought which troubles her as she does not want to give up the child. By 1923 she had given birth to a baby girl in Genéva having planned to leave her with an adoptive family. Later Edith decides she can not do this and plans to return to Switzerland, retrieve her child and put her in the care of the Drewe family at Yew Tree Farm, which she does.

She visits the farm repeatedly to see her daughter, and is later distraught when Mrs Drewe keeps her away out of fear that she considers the child like a plaything. Edith proves her love for Marigold even more when she chooses her daughter over her family and reputation by reclaiming her and running away following news of Gregson's death and her aunt and grandmother's plans to take the child abroad again. But they later return as foster-mother and daughter, but Edith's affection for Marigold remains strong - even when going to London for Rose's wedding she feels guilt for leaving Marigold behind and thinks about her all the time.

|-|Tom= Tom taught Edith to drive after the Great War began. When Tom became engaged to her younger sister, like her elder sister she tried to persuade Sybil to back out. But when Tom married Sybil she began to treat him with courtesy and respect. She was at his wedding, just as he was there when she was supposed to wed Anthony Strallan. She, like Tom (and the rest of the family), mourned deeply when Sybil and their brother-in-law Matthew passed.

Tom defends Edith from Mary's teasing in 1922 when Rosamund takes her to the continent (not knowing Edith was pregnant with Michael Gregson's child). By 1923 they appear to have grown much closer. At the ball at Grantham House, Tom speaks to Edith, where he clearly thinks of himself and her as the rebels in the family. He tells her they need to stand up to them, that however much they love them they must fight their corner or be defeated by the rest of the family. Edith is inspired by his words to go back to the continent and reclaim her daughter. She tells Tom he is right, and thanks him (without telling him specifically why).

Before she leaves Downton, she tells Tom he is a fine man and that if she could talk to anyone about her situation it would be him, signifying how much she trusts him, and gives him a kiss on the cheek. He encourages her after she returns to get more involved in the running of the magazine business she has inherited, saying she is "clever, and a good writer". Edith tells him that while Mary talks like she is the only one who would miss him if he moves to America (which he had been considering strongly), she would miss him too. And he tells her he would miss her.

|-|Rosamund= Edith becomes closer to Rosamund as she spends more time in London and stays at her house, 35 Belgrave Square. Edith is unhappy with Rosamund following her night with Michael Gregson, but when Edith becomes pregnant Rosamund is the first to know the secret (because Edith was in London with the intent of having an abortion, for fear of becoming a social outcast for having an illegitimate child).

Rosamund comforts Edith and pledges to support her, despite Edith's fears that Rosamund and the rest of the family will shun her. Though she advises against the abortion, Rosamund is with Edith when she goes before leaving. Rosamund proposes going to the continent and giving the child up for adoption so that Edith will be free.

Edith is not happy however with having giving her child up in Geneva, Switzerland. Rosamund on the other hand becomes cold again, insisting to Edith that she must move on and forget the child. Though she does feel for her when she grieves in fear for Michael, Rosamund insists that this is for the best. But Edith in the end chooses to reclaim her daughter and have her raised on a farm nearby (which Rosamund opposed). </tabber>

Downton abbey series2 ep2 29-1- 595.jpg

Branson taught Edith to drive and as a result she offers her services to Longfield Farm to drive the tractor. Although first surprised by the offer, Mr and Mrs Drake soon accept. John Drake falls for Edith, tells her that she is beautiful, and she shares her first kiss with him. However, Mrs Drake sees them and Edith is later informed by letter that she is no longer needed on the farm, that they have found someone else to help. |-|Gordon= When a severely burnt soldier, Patrick Gordon, arrives at Downton from Canada with claims to be Patrick Crawley, no one but Edith believes him. She spends lots of time with him reminiscing about their childhood and tries to convince the others that after the Titanic sunk he suffered from amnesia so they mistook him as Canadian, where he took his name from a bottle. It apparently wasn’t until he was blasted in war that he completely remembered about Downton. Worried that Matthew Crawley would not be the future heir, Robert Crawley investigates the matter and finds out that one of Patrick Crawley’s friends, Peter Gordon, emigrated to Canada a year after the sinking of the Titanic. Shortly afterwards, the soldier says goodbye to Edith in a letter. She still believes he was her cousin, and the whole thing leaves her devastated.

|-|Drewe= Timothy Drewe is a tenant farmer on the Crawley estate and has a wife and several children. In the summer of 1923 Edith asks him to take in her daughter and raise her with his wife, saying that she will pay him whatever he wants. She tells him that the child is the daughter of a friend of hers whose parents are dead and that she cannot raise the child at Downton Abbey as her parents did not approve of the friendship. She urges him to keep it a secret. He says that it can be a secret just between the two of them. Timothy suggests that he will write a letter to himself saying that a friend of his has died and left this child alone so that even his own wife will not know the real origins of the child. Edith is deeply touched that Drewe would keep her secret for her, commenting on how good it is to know there are some decent people in the world. </tabber>
