The Quartermaine family is a very wealthy and prestigious fictional family on the American soap opera General Hospital. The Quartermaines have been a staple on General Hospital since their introduction in the late 1970s.


  • Edward Quartermaine (September 2, 1918 - November 20, 2012)
  • Lila Morgan Quartermaine (April 29, 1918 - July 14, 2004)

Edward Louis Quartermaine was the patriarch of the family until his death in 2012, and his wife Lila Morgan Quartermaine was the matriarch until her death in 2004.

The family came to Port Charles in 1978 when their son Alan decided to stay at General Hospital as a physician and bought what is now known as the Quartermaine Mansion for his new wife Monica as a wedding present. She has ever since drilled it into everyone's head whenever the opportunity presents itself that she is the owner of the house, which is usually followed by a reiteration that Alan gave it to her.

Edward is the son of George and Ida Quartermaine, and the grandson of Edgar and Martha Quartermaine. Lila is the daughter of Harold Morgan. They have two children together: son Alan, who died in 2007; and daughter Tracy. Edward also has a son with mistress Beatrice LeSeur, Jimmy Lee Holt. In 1994, it was revealed that Edward also has a son, Bradley Ward, with his mistress from World War II, Mary Mae Ward. Bradley died in 1974.

Tracy named her son Edward after his grandfather, and Jason Morgan and his wife Sam named their son Daniel Edward after his great-grandfather. Also, Skye Chandler-Quartermaine named her daughter Lila after her great-grandmother, and Sam named her daughter Lila after Lila Morgan Quartermaine as well.

The Quartermaines are an eccentric and dysfunctional family, known for their comedic fights. Whenever the Quartermaine mansion was filled with Q's, undoubtedly bickering would soon follow. The rivalry between Monica and Tracy was often a source of conflict within the household. Tracy's jealously over Edward deeming Alan his favorite child, was another source of conflict.

The family owned business, ELQ International, named for, Edward Louis Quartermaine, has also been the center of several conflicts within the family. Corporate take-overs staged between members of the family vying for control of ELQ, has often left the Quartermaines with divided loyalties. The latest battle for ELQ emerged between Tracy and Alan's son, A.J. Quartermaine after Edward's passing in 2012.

Aside from being successful business people, the Quartermaine family is also known for their work at General Hospital. Several family members have become successful doctors, others sit on the GH board of directors, and the family has made several sizable monetary donations to contribute to the growth of the hospital.

Thanksgiving has always been a special holiday to the Quartermaine family. Each year, they annually attempt to have a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, only for it to somehow become ruined, resulting in them ordering pizza. Over the years ordering pizza for Thanksgiving became a family tradition, along with singing We Gather Together before eating their meal. In 2012, Edward passed away shortly before Thanksgiving, and the Quartermaines came together on the holiday to honor him.
