Hi Leefer. If you're still looking for info on the Ferris line please connect. Henry was the husband of my 4x great aunt, Elizabeth Ascott. He wasn't a convict...but was charged with larceny 25 Feb 1845 and acquitted.
According to his headstone, (I have a photo), He was born 22 Sep 1825 In...
I may get a 'slap on the wrist' if I haven't done this correctly, (apologies in advance moderator).
My personal email address is ..

Great. I also have him in the 1851 census but can't find him in the 1841. I do have his mum Elizabeth and her husband in the 1841 census with - maybe - her father Thomas.
I'd send you my email address but I'm not sure how to do it in this forum so it's not made public.
my Dooleys are from Eglish, Leabeg and Ballinaguilsha - all in Kings County/Offaly - about 75 k's away from yours according to Google Earth, which isn't too far away. My 3x great grandfather Martin Dooley born abt 1800 mar Jane Ann O'Connor born 1811 on 1 May 1831 and they had 8 chn...
Hi anyone who's still looking at researching the Lindridge line. My Lindridge's come from Kent.
It's made harder by different spellings, Lindridge, Lendredge, Lyndridge etc.
Does anyone have William Frederick born abt 1826 Hollingbourne and Elizabeth Wiles born 1831 Chiddingstone?
Not as far as I know but I haven't researched this branch thoroughly as they're relatives by marriage (3 of them!)
I'm just trying to find out about the photo as relatives would like to know for sure.

Thanks for your responses.
1898 - 1900 would fit one family though the suggestion that it could date to pre WW1 means it could be another.
I was able to preclude the third family as I found one couple only had one child before separating.
The remark about the hands is interesting though as...
I'd appreciate it if someone could give me an idea of the era of this photo. It has a family surname on the back but the problem is three females in my family married three male members of another family all ending up with the same married surname.
Is it possible to determine whether this...
Thanks again Don, that's fascinating.
I have other photos in which I've noticed it looks like something is sticking out near the feet. Now I know what it is!
It's unfortunate the photo pixelates too much for you to see if it's a Medici belt. I have the image on my PC and it doesn't look too...
your comments help a lot. True, the material could be plain check.
Can you elucidate about neck stands? What are they?
Another problem I have is guessing their age when this was taken but their are probably too many factors to be taken into account such as genetics, lifestyle etc...
I totally agree :)
Though she came from a wealthy family she certainly wouldn't have been after being disowned. I think this probably would have been taken some years after arriving in Australia and living in much poorer conditions as one of their children was born in a tent they...
Thanks Dave, will do. :)
The problem with Family History Research is - work interferes with it!
I don't even know who the priest was that married them unfortunatley, and I was a member of ancestry.com for over 18 months. Found nothing there either.
Still making my way around the forums...
Thanks for all your replies. The era/s you suggest match what I believe about these ancestors. Though I'd never heard of "Duckweed" before, so I learnt something new!
Having no identifying particulars can be a pain.
The woman in the photo by the way, was from a very rich Scottish family...
Thanks for your welcomes.
Dave, I've only traced my Irish history back to 1836 unfortunately, (Hugh Dooley/Mary, (or Margaret) Connor). They were married in Ireland - King's County, now Offaly, so not much luck there.
I only have that date because it was noted by ancestors here in Australia. I...
Can anyone help me identify the period of costume in this photo please?
There are no identifying names or studio etc. on it.
It was given to my mother by her mother, who told her it was of the "Original Scots who first came here." (i.e. were sent/immigrated to Australia.)
I've just gone in to reply to you and now the attachment clip is there!
I went into my 'Your Control Panel', Settings and Options/Edit Options and then changed from Standard Editor to Enhanced Interface under the Miscellaneous Options (Message Editor Interface).
Thanks for the quick...
I've just joined today. :) and wanted to upload a photo to ask for help to identify the clothing people are wearing to try and determine the era. However, there isn't a 'Manage Attachments' button anywhere.
I'm trying to post using 'New Post' or 'New Thread' as stated in the FAQ...
