Misc. Notes
Lived at 28 Birchington Road, Kilburn, London, at the time of Hannah Smith’s death. She testified against Sydney Smith’s first wife, Hannah, in the divorce proceedings brought in 1881 by Jeminna Bindon against her physician husband John Vereker Bindon, apparently having been an eye-witness to the indiscretions that took place. Pinget had been Sydney Smith’s mistress for some time under the family roof, taking her place at the dinner table while Hannah was exiled by her husband to the servants’ hall. A year after Hannah’ death, Pinget married Sydney Smith. When he died less than two years later, she took over the care of the three younger boys for a while before disappearing into total obscurity.
