Elizabeth Loch

Elizabeth Loch nee Villiers was the wife of Sir Henry Loch, High Commissioner for South Africa and Governor of the Cape Colony in the period leading up to the South African War, whom she married in 1862. She was also the aunt of two of Schreiner’s younger friends, the cousins Constance Lytton and Adela Villiers later Smith. Just one letter is extant, although Elizabeth Loch seems to have taken a warm interest in Schreiner.
