Amethyst Hornblower was the wife of Rudibert Bolger (born S.R. 1260) and the mother of Adalbert Bolger (S.R. 1301-1397).

Etymology

Amethyst is named after the gemstone, which perhaps signifies a higher social class for the Hornblower Family, obviously the same class as the significant Bolger Family to whom Amethyst married into.[source?]

The name amethyst comes from the Greek word αμέθυστος (amethustos) meaning "not intoxicable".
