Daisy Quantock

Daisy an inhabitant of Riseholme and is effectively the prototype for Mapp in the later books. She is a central character in Queen Lucia and appears briefly in Lucia in London and Mapp and Lucia.

She is a great one for fads. When we first meet her in Queen Lucia she is in the process of throwing over Christian Science in favour of Yoga and Guruism. Before that we discover she had also dabbled with a diet, having discovered a little pamphlet called the “The Uric Acid Monthly,” in a diet of:

cheese and protein-powder and apples and salad-oil, […] nuts and pine-branches, which supplied body-building material, and which she weighed out with scrupulous accuracy
