I would love to know more about the German side of this family, do you have a connection? Please get in touch if you can help
What a week! With three families receiving some of their family old photos back home….
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.
…..caught my eye, Mum cherishing her young child, can’t you just see the overwhelming love and pride of her baby son in her eyes.
I bought these beautiful old photos at an Antique Fair last month in Devon
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!
