Is this a military uniform?

This photo is of Adam Frew 1853-1919. Can anyone help with the uniform? Adam was born in Scotland and he emigrated to Pennsylvania USA where he died.
He looks too old to be a soldier! He was a miner when he emigrated.
His belt buckle looks as if it might have a Maltese cross on it.
Any help would be appreciated.

1783 Marriage witnesses

Good morning UK, can you please advise me of the names of the witnesses to this marriage, which took place in Mancetter, Warwickshire. Looks to me like 'John Wist' and 'William Lagae'. Any other suggestions :). Much appreciated.

1841 Census occupation?

Hi All

I would appreciate someone who is used to reading census entries to advise what they think James Bruerton's occupation is in this 1841 Census snip. It looks to me like 'Gen L Filer' - general labourer filer, but not sure what that means, if I'm reading it correctly. The Census took place in Darlaston, Staffordshire. (Piece: 979, Book: 5, Folio: 7, Page: 7). Any suggestions appreciated. Thank you, Mel.

Regiment indentification help please

Is anyone able to help identify the regiment/ranks of the men in this photo?

I believe the man with the moustache to be my great great uncle Frederick John Jupp. I found services records for a man with this name from the same town but there were some discrepancies. It gave a different address as 1911 census (could have moved I thought) but gave wrong parents' names.

I'm hoping to find out the regiment/rank of ...

Could this be the same person?

I'm looking for opinions of others on whether the two people shown here are, in fact, the same person.

The lady on the right has been positively identified as Mary Ann Lilley (1881-1931) who lived near New Milton, Hampshire.

The lady on the left is uncannily like members of the Lilley family, including my late father-in-law when he was young (he even said "she looks like me" when shown the photo before he died), and ...

Solving an identity debate

This is my first post on the forum so forgive me if I haven't got it quite right.

I am having a debate with a second cousin about who the lady might be in the attached photograph.
Any help with identifying a possible year might help us sort this out.
It was taken in the UK but we have no idea when or where. It is possibly of a lady who lived from 1830 - ...

Is there anyway of identifying who the policeman is or any information about him from this photograph. The only thing known about him is that he was a relative of my grandfather, RFC Jones (born in London in 1897).

Any suggestions/ ideas would be greatly appreciated.
