Minerva Armitage is the eldest daughter of the Reverend Charles Armitage, the vicar of St. Charles and St. Jude. She lives in the country with her mother, father, and seven younger siblings (five younger sisters and two younger brothers). In the Armitage household, she rules the roost. Mrs. Armitage, her invalid mother, is far too busy fancying herself unwell to manage the household.
