Creyke/Fairweather/Fowler Tunbridge Wells c 1880 to 1890

I would like to know the approximate age of the lady in the photo, who I believe is wearing a mourning veil.
The undated photo was taken at H. Jenkins Alpha Studio, Grosvenor Road, Tunbridge Wells.I believe he was in the area around 1880's.
My late aunt was told that it was a photo of an "aunt" of Hannah Creyke (1847-1913) of Burythorpe/Nun Monkton, Yorkshire. Hannah did not have any maternal aunts or uncles and ...

Can anyone help date this dress

Hi, I've just been sent this photo of a lady who is thought to be taken around 1911ish but I do wonder if the clothing makes it earlier and could be a picture of my great-grandmother, which as the lady looks quite youthful in the photo would put it around the 1880s. Would appreciate some guidance on this :)

Thank you

Date of photo Cambridgeshire 1900s

The attached photograph was found in my grandmother’s photo album (Maud Mary Martin (b. 1894), I am hoping it is a photo of her mother and two of her younger siblings, but that will only work if it was taken between 1900 – 1905. I suspect it might be later, based on style of the lady’s dress. The photo is printed on a postcard, nothing significant on rear. It is likely that the family were ...

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.

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 ...
