Lucy

Irene's maid. Benson describes her thus Miss Mapp:

Irene lived in a very queer way with one gigantic maid, who, but for her sex, might have been in the Guards.

and it's probably this oblique reference to “a very queer way” along which the fact that Benson seems to forget about Lucy after Miss Mapp, as she doesn't appear in later books, that lead Guy Fraser-Sampson to suggest a lesbian relationship between them in Major Benjy.
