If it's any use King Street does back onto Belmont Road- it's only around the corner,

Saw this in a Lye history Facebook group, though it'd be interesting for your research, although not connected.

It's a wedding photo from 1912 of John Henry Cole.

The house is almost over the road from 12 Belmont Rd, in fact the houses in the background are #9 and 10.

A big wedding just over the road from Betsy and George Dunn, at the time the were living there, maybe they're in the crowd?

Nice! Thanks so much for sharing. I love seeing these old pictures. I donít recognize my George in that picture but maybe Betsy is there. By April of 1912 George was living in Stourbridge with my great-grandmother Maggie and their daughter.

I canít believe how much time has passed since first posting on this thread. Iíve been able to trace grandad Georgeís biological parents thanks to DNA. He was born Henry Whiting Stuart in Luton, Bedfordshire to a Henry Benson Stuart of the Bengal Army and Sarah Elizabeth Whiting. They werenít married but they must have lived together as a married couple even though HB Stuart was married to another woman. At some point they were no longer together because Sarah Elizabeth went to France with her daughter in about 1887. I donít know why George was given to the Dunns though. I know that SE Whiting was a milliner so perhaps she knew Betsyís cousin, Hannah Maria Pardoe, who was a milliner and dress maker. Thatís the only connection I can make out so far. Itís all very interesting.
