This is my great-great grandfather, George Clark. He was born in 1827 in Bath, Somerset (I believe on 27th June, and if anyone can find an appropriate baptism (son of Wm, labourer), I would be very grateful!!)

George had many jobs over the years, though all connected - Furnace labourer, gas fitter, stovegrate fitter, engine fitter - mainly in Bath and Bristol but also at Huntley and Palmer's biscuit factory in Reading.

In 1849 George married my 2xg grandmother, Elizabeth Sainsbury, and they had ten children including twins. He died in 1903 at Bristol.

I think this photo was taken about 1880.

This is my great-great grandfather, Thomas Mitchell. Thomas was born in 1822 in Keynsham, Somerset.

Thomas was a stone mason, but I'm unsure as to what sort of work he actually did. In later life he was a grocer and beer seller. He married my great-great grandmother, Mary Lewis in 1844 and after her death from malignant smallpox in 1875 he married again to Elizabeth James the same year. Thomas died in 1905 aged 83 having lived most of his life in Horfield, Gloucestershire.

This photo was taken in 1878.

My 2x-great-grandfather Charles Alexander, 1821-1880, is seated in the centre.
On the left is Samuel, and on the right my great-grandfather Joseph Alexander (1851 - 1908).
The boys were the sons of Charles' 2nd wife, Mary.
