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!
