Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs / date for Lilian SUTTON and bicycle
« on: Tuesday 25 August 15 12:11 BST (UK)  »
Would it be possible to date this photo of Lilian SUTTON with her bicycle. If earlier than 1910 then she is in London, if later then she's in Sydney.

Many thanks in advance.

I received and email notification that a topic I had started had been split into two by the moderator. I then received a notification of a response to that topic, but when I clicked on the link to the response, it only took me to the original topic that I posted with no response there from the new person who replied. (Hope that makes sense).

How do I find the new topic?  I hate to think someone has tried to help with my query and I haven't been able to respond to at least say thank you.  :-[

Not sure whether this the right board to post this on ...

I love this photo although I have no idea who the people are. I love the different collar heights, ties, bow tie, lack of tie, 1 lack of lady's gloves, some looking casual some more formal. Whilst the photo was with my grandmother's photos and I guess dates around 1900-1910 (? - please correct me if I'm wrong! the photo is stuck on plain dark green card with nothing on the back), I think it's in Islington, but my mother seems convinced it's in Ickford (my grandmother spent time in both). Any suggestions?

Also, any idea what the group may be? 4 women and 11 men, some looking better off than others? My g grandfather had something to do with very early cars, and my g grandmother was a servant in a vicarage if that helps at all? (Possibly the lady in the middle with the big lace collar could be my young g grandmother, although hard to say for sure)

Any help would be most appreciated

When I scanned this photograph I realised Mary Jane is holding some flowers and wondered if this is a wedding photo (it was her 2nd and his 3rd marriage) which was in 1897. Does the style of clothes and photograph sound right for this date?

Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

(2nd attempt at scanning photographs - hope I've done it right this time!)

Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs / gg grandma Mary Ann Sykes for dating

My first attempt at scanning a photograph, hope it's ok.

Fortunately I know who this lady is (1850-1926), but would love to know when the photo was taken.

It is on plain card, but the back has had a piece of paper stuck over. Under the paper however I can make out Walton Studio 105 Oxford St Bondi , who were photographers in Sydney in the 1920s, so this photo is obviously a reprint (the lady's son came to Australia in 1910).

Any suggestions as to age or date would be most appreciated.

New Zealand Completed Requests / children of William Henry KELLS and Annie WILTON
« on: Saturday 08 August 15 13:11 BST (UK)  »
I have finally started researching my New Zealand ancestors William Henry KELLS and Annie WILTON who were married in Wellington in 1871. Annie's obituary (1943) says she had 10 children, however I can only see 9 on the NZ BDM site. These are the children I have confirmed:

1872 Sylvia Evelyn Ann
1874 Frederick Henry
1876 William Fennimore
1878 Frances Minnie
1880 Ann Maud
1882 Lilian Wilton
1884 Florence Violet Hume
1887 Arthur Harold
1891 Alfred Edward

Some on-line trees that I have seen also show Joseph Henry Gordon b 1907, however I can't see his birth registration (and Annie would be getting pretty old by then at around 52-56). Certainly the obit mentions her son G Kells - the missing son.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I could complete this family?

Many thanks in advance

Oxfordshire Lookup Requests / baptism lookup Mary BELCHER Little Milton 1791
« on: Thursday 30 July 15 12:27 BST (UK)  »
Would it be possible for someone to lookup the Little Milton parish registers to see if there's a baptism for Mary BELCHER around 1791? (I have that date and location from her age in the 1861 census).

Many thanks once again in advance

This is part of the Ickford 1861 census, I'm wondering if the lady's name is "Martha Cherry" and how old she is? (I thought it was 43?).

I have another thread about "Martha" going at the moment,
but couldn't attach the image to the post there?? Hopefully someone here can at least help to make sure I have the right name and age.

Thanks in advance.

Oxfordshire Lookup Requests / baptism lookup Martha CHERRY Albury 1818
« on: Friday 24 July 15 06:38 BST (UK)  »
I have just noticed a Martha CHERRY in Ickford in the 1861 census who says she was born in Tiddington around 1818. As I have some other Cherry's from Tiddington, baptised at Albury around this time, but not Martha, I'm wondering if it would be possible for someone to lookup her baptism for me?

Many thanks
