|Ellen Burns and maybe her sister - but where, and who are the others?
It shows a group of people in the grounds of a property.
In the second row (above the young boys), seated are two ladies. I believe they were sisters, both of whom have passed away.
The one on the right is my Grandmother, known as Ellen Burns. If it was her sister she was called Eva Burns.
I think the photograph was taken before 1928.
Ellen Burns was born in 1908 Leasingthorne, Co Durham and was a Domestic Servant in service during her younger life. In 1931 she married John William Leet at the RO at Cuckfield. Not sure when she moved to Sussex but she spent the rest of her life in Haywards Heath. Their two witnesses were James Wilson and George Budden (?Buddon) (as shown of their wedding cert)
I am keen to find someone who can help me put a name to the building (such as it is) and the other people.
|Samuel Hall Parks
|Born Rotherfield 1859, died Eastbourne 1928, outside his watchmaker's shop in Seaside, Eastbourne.||Linda Hall|
|Tommy Hall Parks
Samuel's younger brother who died of TB in 1886 aged 25.
I have virtually no family photos from my father's family except for the postcard above showing his mother's father, Samuel.
I've copied the others from a relative's collection and would be delighted to hear from anyone who can help to identify the third and fourth photos.
Might this be Samuel, or perhaps his father. The latter died aged 35. Is this man older?
On the reverse is "R. Morton-Day, Eastbourne School of Photography, 45 Gildridge Road".
Could this be Samuel's wife Sarah Penfold, born in Brighton in 1857 and died in Eastbourne in 1918.
Taken by G. Austin, 70 Seaside, Eastbourne.
|My Grandmother, Fanny Taylor nee` Pride, is in both photographs,
in the rather floral blouse.
I would like to know if any one can say where they might have been taken and what the
occasion might have been. They are thought to date to around 1920.|
I think that the photographer, A. H. Stickells might give a clue as he was quite well known for operating from a caravan in the area of Crowborough.
My Great Uncle Arthur Harvey is standing 2nd (L).
Apparently the photo was taken in Reeves studio in Lewes (they) think.
|Two photos of weddings we think 1930's in Lewes. The common factor to both is my Great Uncle born Lewes 1902. His father was Frederick George Harvey born 1877 Lewes, and lived latterly at 46 Western Road,Lewes. I would like the other people in the photos indentified if possible. The name Ferner, of Demontford road Lewes, came to the mind of my mother but very unsure.||Angela Chitty|
My Great Uncle Arthur Harvey sitting 1st (L) less formal.
Possibly (vaguely) taken at the Grange in Lewes.
|Man and woman taken by W Prudden of 19 Tidy Street, Brighton in c. 1870s or 1880s. Photographer's ref. 42556. 252KB.||All three photos are from my late grandfather's collection but unfortunately I do not know who the people are and I am keen to see if anyone has any information to confirm their identities. The people in the photos are likely to be part of the Page or Waller family.||Mark Page|
|Young girl and older lady taken by W Prudden of 19 Tidy Street, Brighton in c.1870s. Photographer's ref. L4167. 270KB|
|Woman taken by Spink & Son of Brighton dated 1886 to 1888. Photographer's ref. 104987-1. 682KB.|
|Is this the Toronto Centre, Lewes? And what is the structure?|
|The postcard has intrigued me for many years, and I would be most grateful if someone could shed any light on what this structure is and where it is situated. I have understood it to be at the bottom of Toronto Terrace Lewes. Having grown up in Lewes I would love to obtain photographs of my old haunts||Wendy Seares|
|Kate Stubbs and |
This photo was found in my husband's grandmother's effects, but I can't find any connection to her.
I think they are KATE STUBBS and WILLIAM HOADLEY, and from FREEBMD research it would appear that they married in 1895 East Preston,Sussex
My husband's grandmother was BLANCHE EMILY MOORES nee FIELDER.
Does anyone know this couple? If so I would be pleased to hear from you.
|Roberts Fuller Morley |
I am trying to identify the woman in the centre of this photo. The photo was taken in the
Hastings area, c1950.
<>br /> The woman on the left is my Paternal Grandmother Mabel Nellie Fuller b. 1895, Hastings. The man is my Paternal Grandfather William John Roberts b.1895, South Wales. My Grandmother is dressed in black, a colour she normally only wore for funerals, her mother Rose Fuller (nee Morley) b. 1875 died in Hastings 1948, they could have been there for her funeral
Anyone that has any information, it would be greatly appreciated.
|Roberts Fuller White Stone|
Hastings or Battle 1950
I am trying to identify the man and woman on the extreme right and
left of this photo and the two young girls in the centre.
The photo was taken in either Hastings or Battle, c1950.
The three at the back are (left) my Paternal Grandfather William John Roberts b.1895, South Wales. (centre) his wife, my Grandmother Mabel Nellie Fuller b. 1895, Hastings. After marrying in Hastings 1918 they moved to South Wales. (right) my Grandmothers cousin, Doris White (nee Stone) b. 1901, London. They were probably visiting Doris and staying with her, she lived in Battle.
Any information that someone might have would be greatly appreciated.
|This photo was taken on a building site possibly in either the Arundel or Horsham area pre 1935 & I wonder if anyone has any more information. The man 2nd from right at the front, wearing gaiters, is my maternal Grandfather William Charles Brown (1888-1966) whose family I am currently researching||Val Wingate|
|Does anyone recognise granddad? Which kind soul sent me this picture?||Peter Killow|
|Lilliott group |
The style of some of the attire worn in this photo suggests it was taken between 1915 and 1920.
The flags would indicate some national event, perhaps a celebration of the end of WW1 in 1918.
I believe the photo was taken somewhere in the area of Milton Street and Lullington (near Alfriston).
Some of my relatives are there. Great Grandfather Henry Lilliott is at the RH side (cap and mutton chop whiskers) and his wife Lucy, just left of him sitting on the end of the second row. My Great Aunt Lucy Simmons (nee Lilliott) is the woman left of centre in the third row with black straw hat and her son Albert is directly below her in the front row, the boy in overcoat.
Does anyone recognise any other persons in this photo.? I would be pleased to receive any comments
|Joseph and Phoebe Wickens|
I'm trying to identify the couple in the photograph.
It was sent to me by an elderly distant cousin, with whom my late grandmother
shared great-grandparents, Joseph and Phoebe Wickens, of Crowborough, and it
occurred to me that it might show Joseph and Phoebe with one of their youngest
two children, both girls. My cousin doesn't know who the sitters are, unfortunately.
If somebody recognises them and it isn't the Wickenses, it would be useful to know
and then I can rule them out.
Joseph Wickens (1817-1892), a farmer, of Harecombe Farm, Crowborough, had been schoolmaster at Sir Henry Fermor School from the 1850s to the 1870s, having succeeded his father, Stephen.
Phoebe Wickens (1823-1894) was a daughter of Thomas Allcorn and Hannah Pratt, of Gilham's Birch, Rotherfield.
