Trelawny, Zella

BORN 1826 - DIED c.1907

Daughter of the adventurer E.J. Trelawny and his child bride Tarsitza, the younger sister of the bandit chief Odysseus Androutzos. Zella inherited her father's temperament and in later years she remembered several examples of this. When she was at school she pulled the Duke of Lucca's nose and when the gardener couldn't keep her away from the forbidden fruit he bound her hands, but then she just bit the fruit from the branches.

Zella married Dr. Jose Olguin and lived in Italy. She sometimes visited Trelawny in England.
