Hi Ruskie

Thanks so much.
The dates would work for the two youngest daughters in the Seddon family - they were born in 1873 and 1875.
There are two more older sisters, born 1867 and 1870 and an older brother born in 1866.
The three younger girls ended up going to Ripley Hospital school for orphans in Dec 1880 (the ones born in 1870 and 1873)- (the youngest one was sent a couple of years later when she was old enough to be accepted).
I don't know if the older lady is their paternal grand-mother or their maternal great-aunt, as she lived with the family, (according to censuses) until their mother, Eliza Maria Dodd, died.
Does crossing the legs have a significance?

Thanks for your help
Best wishes
