Quincy was called from France to London to present the King the documents from the Jay Treaty. He often visited Joshua Johnson, the American Consul, and this is where he got reacquainted with the woman who would be his wife. Louisa Catherine Johnson was the English born daughter of the American diplomat in London. He first met her when he was 14 and she was barely more than an infant.
He hinted at the relationship when writing to his mother. Abigail was worried that he would marry an English girl and his prospects in American government would be destroyed. “I would hope for the love I bear my country, that the siren is at least half-blood.” I wonder if there were muggles on either side.
