Is this painting that of charles dursley b.1830 my 3x great grandfather?
« on: Thursday 22 February 18 16:39 GMT (UK) »
Hi there my 3rd great aunt clare dursley was married to a painter/artist called Charles William carey 1862-1943 he did some paintings of family members that I have had some sent to me by a 2nd cousin.
I came across this one painted by Charles William carey just named as a older gentleman, I was wondering if it is that of his father in law Charles dursley my 3rd great grandfather, it looks remarkably like my ggrandmother frances b.1860 his daughter.
Charles dursley was born 1830 in Bristol died in 1897 would this painting fit to 1890s?
Due to copy rights I am just able to attact a link to the painting in question but ive attached a coloured photo of his daughter frances for comparison reasons, kind regards

I don't think that there is much to date the painting that I can see Brad, but this will bring it back up the board for you.
