Most of you will, I’m sure, have heard of J.M.Barrie, James Matthew Barrie of Peter Pan fame, but how many of you have heard of his wife Mary Ansell.
I bought these beautiful old photos at an Antique Fair last month in Devon
This is a group of four great old photos, all kept together thankfully.
So now I have identified the couple, the child on Mum Stella’s lap is indeed their first born Stella Joanna Matilda Parminter Tudor!
After being able to return the lovely photo of Agnes to a direct descendant a couple of weeks ago, Dick has very kindly sent me more images of the the family
Scrolling through Ebay one evening I noticed this absolutely beautiful glass Ambrotype photo, unframed, of a couple, taken I thought probably 1855/60’s
I never imagined it would take me on a journey to the Netherlands, Sweden, Milan, Italy, Sunderland, Durham. Also connections to Christopher Columbus and even the Queen of Holland
