I have found that Robert Sparke Hutchings was the very first Vicar of St Andrew’s Church, Monkton Wyld in 1850
Agnes Jane AKERS married Charles William SLY at the beginning of 1880 in Cardiff, Glamorgan, Wales
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
Having spent about four days worth of research on these Old Photos it’s time to give in. Have I missed something, so if you have any ideas or inspiration I would love to hear from you!
The bride was attired in an ivory charmeuse (Silk) dress, trimmed with French lace and pearls, and carried a sheaf of lilies.
Found recently at the Fleamarket & what a surprise I had when I got home & turned this one over!
