I only posted this blog today & astonishingly later this afternoon one of my lovely Twitter followers found the marriage of the couple on the British Newspaper Archives.
The groom is handsome, the bride is beautiful and don’t they look such an attractive couple together, obviously from an upper class family…..
I felt that I must try to finish what Anne had started, and I hope that I have achieved that
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.
What a bonus to have another photo that is written on of the same Gibbs family!
In my last part about the family with connections to A La Ronde, I thought I would share the few photos unidentified so far with you.
Imagine my surprise when I looked on the back of these photos to see they were of a family from Beaminster, Dorset!
Who was Ellis Ogilvie? After another half hour reading all the reports for any clues I hit gold! I did a happy dance!!!
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
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
