These daguerreotype photographs are of my g-g-g-aunt, Ann Stevens nee Smith and her husband, Willoughby Pontifex Stevens. They were Quaker shopkeepers in Banbury and had married there in 1846. Ann and Willoughby had four children before Willoughby succumbed to consumption in 1855 aged 33. Ann lived on, a widow, for a further 40 years.




I'm not sure of the exact date of these two photos, but obviously before 1855!

This is my ggg grandmother Eleanor Turner who maried Robert Batman 16th Feb 1819 in Sydney.

She died on 26th June 1867 and her husband of 48 years died two weeks later on 7th July.

Goulson Family Group Image c1860

L-R Richard (b1803), Valentine (b1820), Job (b1821) and Benjamin (b1813).
Job developed improvements to gas meters and patented his designs, he went on to become manager of a gas works in Berlin.


The image is a photocopy of the original photograph owned by Gavin Goulson (great grandson of the Valentine pictured), it is believed to date from around 1860 and probably taken in Lincoln.

This is my great-great grandfather, Nathan Maynard. Nathan was born in 1805 at Whittlesford in Cambridgeshire. He was a grocer for most of his working life but also enjoyed painting scenes of his home village some of which have been published in a book about Whittlesford.

Nathan married Catherine Smith of Wadesmill Herts in London in 1827 and they returned to Whittlesford where they had nine children. Nathan was keen on education and sent his sons to the Perse School at Cambridge.

Nathan died at his home in Whittlesford in 1863.

This photo was probaby taken at the end of the 1850s.

This is my g-g-grandmother, Mary Buck nee Smith. She was a Quaker, born in Witney, Oxon in 1827. She lived most of her married life in Adderbury, Oxon where by the time of her death she was the only worshipper at the local Quaker Meeting House. Mary died in 1914 at Adderbury. She always wore traditional Quaker dress, but this didn't stop her climbing ladders to inspect the building work on her property in the 1890s at which point she was described as a mad old woman by the locals! (she definitely wasn't!!)

I think this photo was taken about the time of her marriage in 1858.
