Photo kindly sent by Steve Robinson that includes Mary Georgina Walker, Mary Hannah Smith and her mother. The "mother" is Mary, who is so far our oldest maternal ancestor, so the mtDNA source, which has the Results of Haplogroup -K2b1a. So descended from Katerina, the 16,000 years old lady found by the lagoon where Venice now is; one of the original "7 Daughters of Eve". "Otzi the Iceman" is in there somewhere too.

We don't know if she had any penchant for handing people swords, like the Arthurian "Lady of the Lake" (aka the"watery tart" of Monty Python fame).

The photographs were all kindly sent to as by Kathryn Neville . See more on this at "Walker Ancestors" at https://descentfromadam.wordpress.com/2017/01/23/photos-of-walker-ancestors/

"Kathryn also shared the photo below (this one) of the gathered Walker family that is dated 1905 and was captioned by VJW “At Brownedge in 1905 when Uncle Leo visited very shortly before Father died. Father died a very few days after Uncle Leo left.”

On the far left is Kathryn’s great grandfather Charles A Walker. She thinks that the woman in middle in black is our shared ancestor Mary Hannah Smith (Charles’ mother) who also died in late 1905. This would tally with the photo beneath kindly sent by Steve Robinson that includes Mary Georgina Walker, Mary Hannah Smith and her mother.

Kathryn thinks that the man on the far right might be the “Uncle Leo” that her ancestor John Vincent Walker refers to, although she say that there is another man with the same hat and moustache. My cousin Hamish and I think that Leo is Polly’s brother James L. Walker who had a daughter called Marjorie. There’s a rumour that Leo was murdered in Africa.

I think our Marwood ancestors including my grandmother might also be in this photo. Polly Walker married our great grandfather Fred T. Marwood, his family were also Catholics who lived near Preston."

The photographs were all kindly sent to as by Kathryn Neville . See more on this at "Walker Ancestors" at https://descentfromadam.wordpress.com/2017/01/23/photos-of-walker-ancestors/ The note attached to the one above says, ‘Mother (Eliza Walker) and Aunt Polly with Great Grandfather and housekeeper at Brownedge’. We think that the Aunt Polly in the photo is my maternal great grandmother Mary Agnes “Polly” Walker of Avenham Towers. Eliza Walker (née Holden) was the wife of Charles Aloysius Walker (Polly’s brother) who lived at Brownedge House, Bamber Bridge, near Preston. We are guessing that the Great Grandfather in the photo is Charles and Polly’s father James Walker of Avenham Tower.

The caption for the photo from the Ampleforth Journal reads: “Reginald Marwood, aged 11, arrives on 12 September 1901 in a Renault car to start his school life at Ampleforth. caption for the photo reads: “Reginald Marwood, aged 11, arrives on 12 September 1901 in a Renault car to start his school life at Ampleforth. Later, as Fr Stephen Marwood, he was the first Housemaster of St Oswald’s House from 1926 to 1949. He died on 15 December 1949”.

My mother tells a story that when the Renault dealer first demonstrated the car to her grandfather it had trouble with the hills in Lancashire. It wasn’t long before her grandfather pointed out that the brochure had promoted the car’s hill climbing capabilities and apparently the dealer’s response with thick french accent was something along the lines of, ‘these are not hills, they are mountains’.

Mr. C. Kirby and Miss R. Wright On Saturday, at the Roman Catholic Church, Fordingbridge, the marriage was solemnized between Mr. Claude Kirby, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. G. H. Kirby, of Woodyates House Salisbury, and Rosemary Louise, second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. FitzHerbert Wright, of Hale Park, Breamore, Salisbury.
The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Father Cyril Smith, SJ., assisted by the Rev. Father Anscott. The bride was given away by her father, and wore a dress of ivory satin, with train of old Brussels lace (lent by her grand-mother, Mrs. FitzHerbert Wright), a wreath of orange-blossom, and tulle veil. She was attended by Miss Iris Wright (sister), Miss Valda Kirby (sister of the bridegroom), and Miss Ruth Tracy, who wore primrose georgette dresses with touches of turquoise, with tulle veils, and carried bouquets of yellow tulips. Major Carroll- Leahy was the best man.
After the wedding a reception was held at Hale Park, where a large number of relatives and friends were entertained. Later, the bride and bridegroom left for Gloucestershire by motor-car, the gift of the bride’s father.

Another set of photos from Charles Daniel. George Keith Maitland (1854-1896) is my great great grandfather and was the youngest son of George Ramsay Maitland and Alice Anne Nisbet. He was born in Edinburgh and the 1871 Census shows him being at Hailey Bury College School in Great Amwell, Hertfordshire. He was a tea planter in Ceylon, and I’ve uploaded photos of his estate here

From what I understand he died in England. He was riding a pony and trap, and the pony was frightened by a car. The pony bolted and he was thrown and mortally injured

Charles Daniel has been in touch. ... He’s very kindly sent a photo of the wedding of my great grandparents George Henry Kirby and Alice Marie (Elsie) Mailand in Ceylon in 1899. I doubt George’s family would have been in Ceylon at the time, but I’m guess that Angus and Elsie’s siblings are in the photo (Alexander McDonell, Keith Andrew Ramsay and Christina Clair Maitland). I also think their mother Theresa (McDonell of Keppoch) would be in the photo too, possibly dressed in black. I wonder whether Petronilla Maitland’s family are also in the photo.

I know next to nothing about FitzHerbert Wright (1841-1910) and his wife Charlotte Rudolphine Louise von Beckman other than the following: they married in August 1865; he gained the rank of Honorary Colonel in the Sherwood Foresters: he lived at The Hayes, Swanwick, Derbyshire; they may have also lived at Yeldersley Hall where I think my grandmother Rosemary Wright was born;
