VIRGINIA HAMILTON BELLAMY, VISCOUNTESS BELLAMY OF HAVERSHAM is a character in the 1970s UK period drama, Upstairs, Downstairs. She was played by actress Hannah Gordon.
Virginia was first introduced as a widow of a naval captain, Charles Hamilton, who was seeking aid for naval widows. It was stated that she was from Inverness, Scotland. She is met by Hazel Bellamy, the daughter in-law of Richard Bellamy. At first, the two could not stand one another, but time forges them into a true relationship. After a respectable time of mourning, Richard and Virginia fell in love and were married, having a honeymoon in Versailles.
Virginia had three children originally, Michael, her oldest who died in World War I, and her two youngest children, Alice and William. She becomes close to her stepson, James.
She is also friends with Lady Prudence Fairfax, the Bellamy family's oldest and dearest friend.
After James commits suicide, Virginia and Richard leave London, after the house is sold and Richard's ward, Georgina Worsley married Robert, the Marquis of Stockbridge, and move to a more quiet life in Dorset. It was Richard and Virginia who gave Rose Buck a teapot for her many years of service to the Bellamy family.
