Photo believed to be Henry Cullimore 1828 -1897. Date wanted please
« on: Tuesday 21 May 19 06:11 BST (UK) »
Photo believed to be Henry Cullimore 1828 -1897. His father John was bn in GLS 1800 and died 1851 in MON. Can someone kindly confirm that from the clothing this photo is unlikely to be of John.   

Henry made a good match - into the Mansel Jones and Talbot (Port Talbot, Fox-Talbot) families.

Assuming this is Henry's photo, he was at the height of his prosperity having started as a mineral agent (coal merchant), then colliery viewer (mining surveyor), and manager of the Ystradgynlais Iron and Steel Works - but family tradition is that drink was his downfall. He died as a coal mine surface worker, killed by a truck that 'ran wild' (slipped its chocks). Newspaper reports of the sale of his furniture etc seem to confirm his former status.

 The inquest is interesting in that one witness was untraceable, another couldn't recall anything.His father John was bn in GLS 1800 and died 1851 in MON. Can someone kindly confirm that from the clothing this photo is unlikely to be of John.

I've highlighted what I believe his collar & tie look like.
This would make it Edwardian.
If you have the original can we see it?

Thanks for yr interest. This came to me as a copy of a batch of Cullimore photos, most being of working class folk (colliers) which his descendants became. Henry is the only possible candidate as his father d. 1851, so obviously too early for this pic. Perhaps it is one of his wife's people, so cannot be  identified.
