Julia is supposed to be 20+ in 1907 so I was thinking a younger woman ie in her 20's than someone born in 1858 but perhaps we could see the photo Toby?

Swindon Advertiser and North Wilts Chronicle 9 Jun 1905

We regret to announce the death of Mr Hambidge of the Limes , Highworth , who died on Thursday afternoon....deceased much respected Church Warden leaves two daughters ...it is not many months ago that Mrs Hambidge died.


This would be Francis Henry Hambidge who died 8 June 1905 aged 80. It does seem that the daughters would be the wrong ages to fit the unseen photo. ( The Limes was put up for sale in 1908 ).

Thank you all for I feel the whole matter is now tied up.

This is a very recent posting.

Clearly I am a poor judge of ladies' ages. T

I'd say they were ladies of middle age
