Jeeves Family Member (Hertfordshire/London) - 1860s?
« on: Tuesday 04 June 24 07:36 BST (UK) »
Hello

This is a photo that has been passed down from my great-grandmother's family, along with others that we are mostly able to identify.  I remember that my grandfather had a label on it (note to self: don't use sticky labels that come off, write on the back in pencil) saying "Michael Jeeves".  Well, this would be my great-grandmother's grandfather, who died in 1846 at the age of 44 - so I don't see how this can be him?  He was a warehouseman, grocer and porter, who left his pregnant widow in very dire financial straits, so again, would he look like that dressed up for a studio portrait?  The subject looks a very young man, so the photograph cannot be early enough to be a young Michael?

Unfortunately, it's a photo of a photo so no studio name, etc.

Any suggestions as to the date (from clothing, etc) might help identify possible family members.

Many thanks.

Ok well it's not someone from the working classes.
Middle class or possibly trade.
