Hi Carri.

Thanks for the kind offer. I haven't updated my page about Owen Angel for quite a while, but I'm still accumulating images, so please do send a scan of yours. []

Regards, Brett

Hi Nicholas,  Sorry I don't have anything more than what's already on the web page above.  I'd be interested in seeing the page with photographs you mentioned, if you could provide the link, please.  Regards, Brett

Judging from the medals shown on the reverse and the fashion of the woman's clothing, the date is between 1885 and 1889ish.  Negative books for this studio are very unlikely to have survived, so the chance of determining subjects' names from the negative number are practically nil.

Your best bet, if they are family members, is to estimate ages, and therefore approximate dates of birth, and look for suitable candidates who are likely to have been in Burton-on-Trent in this time frame.

Regards and best wishes, Brett

Thank you again, Barbara.  The maps are very interesting, particularly when one compares them with current day aerial photos from Google Earth with reference back to the census records.

It is quite possible that Jabez Brown (1843-1921) started off working for the Canal Company, I suppose.  I haven't quite got to the nub of that question yet, and perhaps never will, although as time goes on, more and more solutions do surface to questions that I never thought would be answered.

Regards, Brett

Hi Barbara,

I'm the cousin in New Zealand, and I am indeed very grateful for your kindness in looking up this report in the Lancaster Guardian for us.  If you're interested, you can read about what little I knew about the Crimean War medals in the BROWN family in an article I wrote here:

As you can see, it's a mystery which is now a long way to being solved, and perhaps one day we will discover what happened to the medals themselves.

Regards and best wishes, Brett
