Is it possible to date this picture please of Annie Forest

This is Annie wife of Thomas Forest we think.
If the picture could be dated this might help.

Late 1850 early 1860s I would guess, it would help if we knew when she was born.

Agree with Carol about the date.

I see that her wedding ring is very prominent. When did they marry?

I was bored so I tidied her up a little without destroying the charm, hope you don't mind.

We are not exactly sure who this is.
It is most likely Sarah Legge who married Henry Samuel Rowles in 1847.
I don't know how the costume fits in with this.

Have you now discounted Annie. When did Thomas and Annie marry?

I was given the original information by a relative who is now not certain it is correct.
Looking at the family tree I now think it is most likely Sarah Legge.
It is so dissappointing to have such a lovely  old painting and not be sure of who it actually is.

Are you able to give the dates of all the females who it might be?

It's a lovely painting.
