This picture was in the effect of my husbands grandfather George Ernest Fisher who had links to the Morton and Sellwood families.
Can any one help to identify people in the picture.

Hi Sally,
I cannot tell you these people's name...
But I am a distant relative of the Sellwood family from Bucklebury. This is an extract from my tree.

John Sellwood, b. 1809
+ Sarah Fisher, m. 12 Jun 1833 at BKS: Bucklebury, d. 22 Mar 1885 at BKS: Bucklebury
├── Edwin Sellwood, bap. 29 Sep 1833 at BKS: Thatcham
├── George Sellwood, bap. 18 Jan 1836 at  BKS: Thatcham
├── Maria Sellwood,
└── Charlotte Sellwood

and John's sister Caroline....

Caroline Sellwood, b. 23 Mar 1816 at BKS: Bucklebury, d. 23 Jul 1899 at BKS: Bucklebury
+ Charles Kimber, m. 2 Aug 1841 at BKS: Thatcham

and their first cousin Hannah married there & had a child baptised there in the early 1800's

I know that Sarah is buried at Bucklebury under a large tree with an headstone.

How does the Fisher family have links to the Sellwood family?

Matt

Added - right after i posted that I realised that that John Sellwood married Sarah FISHER which is probably the link

Sellwood -Fisher Links.
James Selwood m Dinah Pennington Tidbury.
daughter hannah b 1805 M Edward Fisher born c1805/08-Have yet to find a record to show Edwards parents.
my husbands line is from Edward and Hannahs son George b1845 m Selina Morton.  George and Selina lived at the Slade Bucklebury in Ivy Cottage.
The Selwoods are also linked to Selina in that she had an Aunt Mercy Morton who married a John Selwood. I did work out on family search that hannah and John both linked back to Stephen Selwood
who married Elizabeth Chapman in 1725.
George Ernest Fisher -son of George and Selina was my husbands grand father and the picture came from a collection of his.

I think at least one of the ladies is a Selwood wife. In a letter Selina wrote to her sons Georges wife not dated but after 1903 about Mrs Selwood coming round in the pony cart to take her out.

Do you think there might be a connection between Edward Fisher and Sarah.

Hi Sally,

I am pretty sure that Edward Fisher who married Hannah Sellwood was a relation of Sarah Fisher who married John, Hannah's brother.

James (who married Dianna Pennington Tidbury) had a brother John but he must have died in childhood.

Stephen Sellwood who married Elizabeth Chapman had three children - James, Stephen & William. William is my g x6 grandfather. I am off to the Berkshire Record Office next week & will confirm a marriage at Thatcham between Stephen & Elizabeth & the baptisms of their children at Thatcham or Chieveley.

I think the photo must be Edwardian era due to the hats & skirts (between about 1901-1912 I'd say but I'm no expert). As you say one of the ladies might be a Mrs Sellwood - could it be the wife of George Sellwood (b 1836) or the wife of Edwin (1833) or the wife of one of their children?

I did some more digging & it turns out that Hannah & John had a brother, Joseph, born in 1815, who married on 13 Apr 1838 at Bucklebury to Martha FISHER. They had many children & one was called Mercy.

When at the Berkshire Record Office I will get a copy of this marriage certificate & scan it in for you.

Some more digging, found out that Joseph & Hannah & John had a brother DAVID born in 1821, who married CHARLOTTE FISHER in 1845 at Bucklebury (maybe). I will find this one too & send on a copy.

Thanks for the replies. I should be grateful for any details Matt can pick up at the record office . If you should see a record for Hannah Selwood and Edward Fisher could you Please check if it has got a note of parentage.
To Lesanne- I shall have to lok into the Copas -Fisher side of things . I just assumed that Copas was the cart maker they had bought the trap from-or perhaps just rented out!
