Recently I had a lovely surprise message from Alison, a friend on Twitter
So now I have identified the couple, the child on Mum Stella’s lap is indeed their first born Stella Joanna Matilda Parminter Tudor!
I was amazed to find that her daughter had inherited from a cousin, a very famous National Trust property!
I was amazed when I opened the battered old suitcase and found eight certificates!
It says “Cicely Burnip’s Daughter. From Thora with love to Bessy.”
Imagine my surprise when I looked on the back of these photos to see they were of a family from Beaminster, Dorset!
