In the short story The Herb of Death, Jerry Lorimer is a young man who was engaged to Sylvia Keene who lived at Clodderham Court with her guardian Sir Ambrose Bercy. Jerry lived in an adjoining property "Fairlies" and was engaged to Sylvia. However, for some reason, Sir Ambrose did not like him and did not approve of the match. Dolly Bantry got an inkling why when, as a house guest of Sir Ambrose, she found Jerry Lorimer kissing another house guest Maud Wye who was a friend of Sylvia.
