It was so nice to see the name of Amanda on a sampler from the first half of the 19th century, and what a pretty sampler this 10-year-old stitched. Amanda is a Latin name meaning “lovable” or “worthy of love.” Whilst it was a popular literary name in the 17th and 18th centuries, it is not often seen on samplers from the 1800s.
Amanda was the fourth of ten children born to Benjamin Brown, a wool corder, and his wife Hannah. She was baptised on July 27 at the Anglican church of Holy Trinity. In the 1851 census return, Amanda was recorded as a dressmaker. - Hands Across the Sea Samplers.
