Hi
Thank you for noting that. I have teh marriage certificate so do have that information. HAM jun was the eldest son. If only I can get back through the birth in France of his father. Presently going through the Paris records as a starting point!

Not sure if you are still on the site, but I am selling a photo album from 1896. The photographs in there were taken by H Mortimer and research lead me to believe this might have been your great grandfather.

Let me know if you would like the link to the ebay listing.

Very good photographs leading me to this they were professional.

Regards

Brad

Hi

Glad to get a response. Whenever I sell something like this I always like to see if I can find someone interested in the history and if I can trace the descendants, reunite the item with someone who would value it personally.

If nothing else, you can have a look and see if my research is correct. I have had a lot of enquiries about this item as it would seem the photographer is well respected.

The item is still for sale at -

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/162832404250?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649

Kind regards

Brad

Thanks Brad
Most interesting album.

It's not clear that these are definitely H A Mortimer photos. In 1896 he would have been 64 and the men in one of the photo's which appear to be his travelling companions appear younger.
That said his partner (wife - no evidence of being married) possibly dies in 1894.
H A Mortimer senior is still with 4 children in the 1891 census in Wales , the younger daughter born in 1878.

Other thoughts :
1. he practiced his photography business as H Mortimer & Sons for a while.....
2. his older son was also H A Mortimer and would have been 34 in 1896 - but in 1895 he was a Hotel Manager and also married that year in Liverpool so not likely to be photographer of these photos.
3. H A Mortimer snr claimed he was born in France in 1832 as a British Subject but have never been able to track that. So he had a connection to France.

So a question - is H A Mortimer's stamp on the back of the photo's - other photo's I have seen have that.

Regards
Warwick

Hi again
Another question pertaining to the H Mortimer photographs.
Do you know the providence of the album?
Where H A Mortimer's family originated from is not known so wondering what his connection is with the name W H Henshaw on the album and where Henshaw was from. Did it come through an estate?
Regards
