The daughter of Lord Henshingly Croft, Lara
was brought up in the secure world of aristocracy - wanting for nothing she was surrounded by servants, social events and high society.
Having attended Wimbledon High School for
Girls from the age of 11 years, Lara's parents decided that now she was 16, she should broaden her education by studying for her A' levels at one of England's most prominent boarding schools. Whilst her academic achievements were outstanding, a number of comments on her term reports indicated that she could perhaps benefit from a more structured lifestyle in order to keep her somewhat impulsive nature firmly in hand…
An adventurous soul, Lara found the idea of
being sent away from home an exciting prospect. With the summer vacation stretching far out in front of her, school seemed a million miles away. Idyllic days were spent riding, swimming, building tree-houses and exploring the full extent of the Croft estate... and beyond. Preferring her own company to that of others, Lara would often take herself off at dawn, returning only at nightfall for supper - much to the distress of her mother who often spent hours phoning friends in an attempt to discover the whereabouts of her wayward daughter.
