Huntingdonshire Heritage

A long, long time ago, in a small town called Eynesbury, there lived a carpenter called Robert and his wife Martha. It is not exactly known how many children Robert and Martha may have had but it is known that they had a son called Tom who was born in 1840.

Emily or Eliza?

Do you have any portraits in your family that are difficult to identify? Here is one of mine. The photograph is probably of one of my great, great grandmothers from Shropshire. Is it Emily or is it Eliza?

Perhaps you can work out which year the photograph was taken. I think it may have been sometime in the 1890s though it could be from the 1880s. I am not very knowledgeable about fashion of any era!
