I have got the car registration details back.

One car was registered in July 1906 to Alfred Henry Smith of New Romney, Dymchurch.
The other car was registered in May 1911 to A, Henry Smith.

From what I can find, Alfred Henry Smith (1861-1928) had been a grocer and later an engineer who lived in New Romney for most of his life. His wife, whom he married in the 1880s, was Matilda Stonham (1857-1935). On the 1911 census Matilda's stepmother, Mary Stonham (1837-1912) was living in Fairlight in a property called Woodbine House on Pett Road.

I am guessing that the album and possibly Woodcote might relate to the family of Matilda Stonham. At present I have found no obvious link to Howbury Hall.

'Woodcote' was in Sycamore Gardens, Dymchurch.

I can't post the photograph I came across, due to copyright.

The link below will take you to the website. Just scroll to the bottom of the initial screen and you will see a slideshow of photographs. 'Woodcote' can be seen on image no. 5.

Many many kind thanks, I can't say how great it is to finally be able to know where this property was. Now hopefully I shall be able to find some sort of link with the photographs  :)

It certainly clicks into place with the car in the photographs belonging to Alfred Henry Smith of Dymchurch.

Thanks Rosie ;)

Noytd

You are very welcome.

I'm intrigued by old photographs and am always curious to find the location, if I can.

I revisted this post yesterday to see if there had been any updates and decided to do a little research on the Dymchurch area. It was purely by chance that I came across the photograph confirming the location of 'Woodcote'.

I would be very interested to know what is discovered about the inhabitants. :)
