Mary Ann Ledger was born in 1834 in Wrotham, Kent, England as the fifth child of William Ledger and Elizabeth Ranger.
…..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.
So now I have identified the couple, the child on Mum Stella’s lap is indeed their first born Stella Joanna Matilda Parminter Tudor!
More info from a descendant in New Zealand!
Anna Wing (Eva Lydia Catherine Wing) married Thomas Lippiatt and Sarah Jane Sheate’s Grandson Peter Reginald Davey
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
At first, after reading the back of the group photo below, I really hoped I could find Grandpa Searle & I have!
I think from my research so far that these two are Katherine Wilson (Kitty) & Edmund Charles Sear (Charlie)
