TitlePapers relating to Sylvia du Maurier
Admin HistorySylvia Llewelyn-Davies (nee du Maurier) (1867-1910) was another of the five children of George and Emma du Maurier, and elder sister to Gerald. She was a renowned beauty and socialite of her day, and married the lawyer Arthur Llewelyn-Davies. She later became famous for her friendship with J M Barrie, with her five sons forming an inspiration for the Lost Boys in 'Peter Pan'. Following the death of her husband and herself from cancer within a few years of each other, Barrie later unofficially adopted the boys. Her son Peter was the publisher of Daphne du Maurier's work on George du Maurier 'The Young George du Maurier, letters 1860-1867' (1951).
