Modesty Barebone[1] was the youngest of Mary Lou Barebone's adoptive children.

A precocious child, Modesty learned to hide disobedient behaviour from her strict mother, as she was aware of the abusive treatment that her older brother, Credence, received. She sung anti-witchcraft rhymes while playing hopscotch, but out of sight of her mother (and her similarly zealous older sister, Chastity), she rebelliously threw away New Salem Philanthropic Society leaflets.[1]

Modesty was described as a "haunted" girl with "inner strength and stillness." She also possessed an ability to see into people's psyches and understand them.[2]
