X2 Great Grandmother

Postby Will Mundy » Sun Sep 01, 2019 9:13 am

Here is my x2 great grandmother, Emma Ann Coombs (1866 - 1928) she was born in Cumnor, Oxfordshire (originally Berkshire) she married in 1886 in Cumnor to Marmaduke Henry Johnson. One of their daughters lived in Iffley, Oxfordshire where I believe this photograph was taken. I was wondering if anybody could date it for me?

Any estimates would be greatly appreciated

Her dress is still Victorian, but women in rural areas often stayed with the same clothes even after they became unfashionable. It is hard to determine how old she would be here, anywhere between 50 and 60 I would guess. So it could be between perhaps 1880-1910. I hope this helps.
