Are these 'photos' related?

Postby eurogordi » Mon Jul 19, 2010 6:29 pm

I'm seeking advice on the following photographs.

The first is taken circa. 1900 and shows, from left to right, Bertie Stephens (1874-1949), his mother Bathsheba Lilley (nee Stephens, 1858-1923) and her parents Harriet Stephens (nee Fudge, alias James 1823-1913) and Edward Stephens (1831-1925). The photo was taken outside their newly built house at Walkford, Highcliffe, Hampshire (now Dorset).

The second picture is of my 94 year old father in law (1916-living) when he was about 18. He is the grandson of Bathsheba Lilley (nee Stephens) referred to above.

The remaining three are a mystery, having been uncovered recently in an antique shop about two miles from where my father-in-law's family lived.

The younger lady resembles many people in my father-in-law's family and, although he couldn't positively identify her, he did comment "she looks like me". Compare this with the one of him, and you will see what he means. Could this be Bathsheba who was widowed in 1896?

The older lady and gentleman are certainly a pair from the frames. Of course, the woman's clothing and hat suggests this might be Harriet Stephens, but I need someone with a more expert eye on facial features! The gentleman could be a younger version of Edward Stephens - the style of beard is right - but on the back is written November 1907. Perhaps both photos were reframed at some time, because I think the photo of the gentleman is older than that.

All comments very welcome! The three mystery people will be in my second posting!
