Arminell: A Social Romance is a Victorian sensation novel by Sabine Baring-Gould that looks at social class distinctions in the nineteenth century, seasoned with nuggets of satiric humor. Serialization began in 1889 and was completed in 1890.[1]


Arminell is headstrong and undisciplined, but with a heart for the less fortunate. Upon learning that her father, Lord Lamerton, plans to close a manganese mine that is the major center of employment in the area, she is determined to confront him. Little does she know that the consequences of his plans will spread like ripples on a pond throughout the community.

At the same time, Arminell finds herself drawn to her brother’s tutor, a young man nicknamed Jingles. When he confides to her that he believes that he is Lord Lamerton’s illegitimate son, Arminell begins to wonder if he may provide her with a path to rebel against her privileged home life and escape.

The story is imbued with realism of behavior and the flavor of local folklore, and populated by memorable characters, such as the fanatic mystic Stephen Saltren, the white witch Patience Kite, the sensitive young tutor “Jingles” Saltern, and Arminell herself.
