In the novel Murder is Easy, Miss Lavinia Pinkerton was an elderly spinster from Wychwood under Ashe. She encountered Luke Fitzwilliam onboard a train. She told him that there was a murderer in her village, and that the murderer was probably going to kill John Humbleby. Before she can tell Scotland Yard, she is run over by a car. Fitzwilliam was astonished when he read that Dr Humbleby had died.

She had a Persian cat named Wonky Pooh.


  • In the 1982 film Miss Pinkerton is renamed Lavinia Fullerton. The character is portrayed by actress Helen Hayes, who would later play Miss Marple in a number of adaptations.
