One more attempt to find a home for these documents, am downsizing so need to de-clutter. These documents only remain to my family because Sarah Jackson was housekeeper to a great uncle's employer!! The great uncle cared for Sarah during her old age and arranged her funeral. I suspect these documents were in her possessions.

Any chance of a higher resolution scan of statue on RH side of door please?

Haha, just noticed it's the boughs of the tree & shadow :-[

Does the round column look slightly Scottish baronial? And is the building at right angles to a higher one with chimneys?

London and Middlesex / Henrietta Monton married Thomas Sutcliffe 1780
« on: Monday 30 August 21 19:47 BST (UK)  »
Henrietta MONTON married Thomas SUTCLIFFE 15 May 1780 in St Bride's Fleet Street after banns, both signed their names, witnesses Robt Ayrton junr & Wm Shepherd [who witnessed several marriages on the page]. They had, at least, the following children Sarah Arabella 1769 [baptised as Sutcliffe although this was before the marriage], Thomas 1780, Sarah Mary 1782 [my ancestor]

I can find no records online for Henrietta Monton or Thomas Sutcliffe - possibly born about 1750 - 1760. Can any one help? Thanks.

That surname looks like Lee/Lea/Low to me, also Alfred & Edward are not correct ages to be the Harris family.
