Family Photos 1881 - 1890
Please add your photos with the names of those photographed, if known.

I am not positive who these are but believe them to be my 3x great grandmother Ann Yates nee Tomlinson with her son Benjamin and daughter Emma. Emma had five illegitimate children. Four boys and a girl. One boy died in 1871 and the girl would have been in service. I believe the boys are: Thomas William Yates, John Yates and Effingham Yates.

Ann Yates nee Tomlinson died in 1886

My great great grandparents John & Emily with their twin son & daughter, Mary & Jonathan. Mary was my great grandmother.

The twins were born in Nov 1886 so I guess the photo was taken the following year.

My maternal grandmother Lily Spence.

Possibly 1887 or 1888? Lily's mother was first married to William Wilson, and on the 1881 in Headingley we see a mixed household: his (Sarah Jane), hers (Emily, John, Joseph) and theirs (Elizabeth/Lily, Ethel):

George Spence 51
Elizabeth Spence 42
Emily Louisa Wilson 20
John W. Wilson 18
Joseph J. Wilson 15
Sarah Jane Spence 11
Elizabeth Spence 6
Ethel Mary Spence 3
Note this last name is Ethel May, not Ethel Mary; an Ancestry mistranscription.

This photo has my grandmother Lily Spence, front left, next to her father George Spence. Her mother Elizabeth (formerly Wilson, nee Crampton) stands behind Lily. I'm guessing that the young men are John and Joe Wilson. Not too sure of the other two females. Lily's full sister Ethel is not in this picture.
