These photos don't make sense in light of my understanding of the information given. Aunt Mercy's studio shot is 1880ish, the wedding is 1900ish.  I can't see how this Mercy could be the mother of the bride, grandmother perhaps?

Hi Newburychap,
Sally did say that this second picture was a photo when Mercy Sellwood nee Morton was older. She was born in 1822, died 1908.
Can anyone with fashion knowledge hazard a guess at the wedding photo's date? That would make it easier to work out the ages of the people in it, and therefore who they might be.
Yours

Vicki - Will check nontheless, the writing leaking through the back of the baptism cert looks to be all over the back so there may be more details of family relationships etc etc etc.

I will email you again later Vicki with more info.

Vicki - I have only just realised where I heard the name Mercy Sellwood before... she was the second wife of George Selwood of Lane End! But she was born a Harris & a relation of my mother so probably no link

In consequent census you will find mercy living with John Morton and listed as his housekeeper.

Matt,
As far as I have researched I cannot make any link with the Bucklebury Sellwoods and the Lane End/Brightwell Baldwin ones.

Hi Matt   
So, our thoughts about Edward Fisher were right. Brilliant. Thank you Matt.
Confirming the children of James and Dianna Sellwood would be more than useful.
The Evans of Cold Ash are directly related to the Sellwoods, so yes please, to confirm what I have.
I have Agnes Charlotte from the censuses but not her baptism.
What did the back of the bap entry for Charlotte say?
Those Indentures sound interesting.
If you don't want to put it all on here, email me at home.  As you say, where to start! You are a star.
Yours
