Does this name sound familiar to anyone? It's been nagging at me for a while.

I read a book about 40 years ago and there was a mysterious character in it with that name. Another character traced the name on some object with her finger and slowly pronounced it “Her-Me-Own Hyslop”. The only other thing I can remember is an old house with a very overgrown garden with weeds coming up between the paving stones.

It's strange how these odd memories stick with one. Confused

It must be 30 or more years ago that my husband and I saw a book outside a secondhand shop, which had the title: "Miss Kilmansegg and her precious leg".
We always regretted not buying it.

I just googled it and apparently it's "A Golden Legend" by Thomas Hood.
