Although many born of House Stanleigh was known for their dusky complexions, Abigail was relatively fair though noticeably tanned in comparison to other women. She was a healthy woman, neither skinny nor fat, and had a high nose. Her hair was blonde and her eyes amber.
John Luckett was very different from the man she knew; he did not fall over himself to flatter her because of her surname and often touched her fleetingly upon her elbows in a playful manner. These actions caused her to warm to the lowborn bard, who proposed that the two elope. Despite her mother's protests, she and John fled Seyford where they lived together for three years.
With the birth of their daughter and the demands of raising her, John Luckett left home and began his work as a bard once more. He sent money back to his family routinely, but the stress greatly diminished Abigail's spirits.
Because John Luckett chaged his surname, it was said that Abigail never "crossed a Meadow".
