Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs / Re: Seeking to date 19th C Napier picture
« on: Wednesday 01 December 21 02:00 GMT (UK)  »
Thank you Jim and Gadget!  I was wondering about when the photographic techniques needed for this process became available?  If not before 1853 then obviously it could not be the father.

I would like to know if there is enough information in this picture  (I'm not sure if it is a portrait or a photograph) to give it an approximate date. The alternatives are a man born in 1789 d. 1853 or his son, born 1836 d. 1903.

Thank you.

Than you again Christine!
Yes it is a bit unclear, but thank you for bringing that website to my attention, it may well prove useful I itself.
Regards, Sue.

Hi Watson, thank you for your reply!
Yes, I thought about the word tenements, but to me that has connotations of a lower class, possibly run down building with lots of residents.  However I have researched some of the other residents in the street and they are definitely upper class, Sir This,  Lady That, Baronets and Esquires, so I thought maybe no tenements in the same street!  But perhaps things were different in 1797!

Thank you Christine, I think you have set a record for a speedy reply!

Do you think that the entry "Mary Brookes for tenants" means that Mary Brookes pays the land tax for tenants, or that she is herself the tenant, rather than the owner of the property?

Attached is a screenshot from a land tax record. Can anyone tell me what the word which looks like Teny after the name Mary Brookes means?
Apologies if this is posted in the wrong category.

Also, is there any way of finding out who may have owned a property at a specific address from that time?

Thank you wivenhoe, Kay99 and ShaunJ!  Greetings from Australia!

The baptism took place in Gloucestershire in 1785 and there was less than a month between the baptism on May 29 and the "carried into visitation" on 21 June 1785. This is why I thought the baby may have died.

Novice question!  Can anyone tell me what the phrase "carried into visitation" on a baptism record actually means?  Does it mean the baby died and is believed to have joined the angels?  There must have been some reason for using that phrase rather than just "Deceased".

Thank you.
