Harry Meltham is the younger son of Sir Hugh Meltham. Rosalie tells Agnes this boy is good-looking and fun to flirt with, but not of marriageable material because he will not inherit money from his father. Even after Rosalie marries Sir Thomas Ashby, she continues to flirt with Meltham. When Ashby sees Meltham and his wife flirting, he sends Rosalie to live permanently at Ashby Park.
