Please could anyone help with this photo? I know it would be a very long shot but I have been sent the attached photograph from a Norman Hawkins christening in 1906 in Hexham. I have a couple of names but I was wondering if anyone else could shed any more light on this? I appreciate this is a very long shot but I would love to hear from anyone. Does anyone recognise the house?

Thanks in advance

Paul

Apologies for not posting this information before but I was at work. The people (I think) we are aware of ar:

Back Row
Third from right is George Oxley (B. 1826 in Hexham) He founded the Free gardenry at Hexham, whatever that means!

Maybe 6th from left was Catherine Smith's Mother (Mary Oxley B. 1850 in Hexham)

Middle Row
(seated) Catherine Hawkins (nee Smith b. 1882 in Hexham) with Norman Hawkins on her lap aged about 3 months?, James Hawkins (b. 1876 in Durham), last on right of middle row Ethel Smith (b. 1884 in Hexham) she was thirteen of 15 and worked as a nanny and later as a ladies companion and died in Crowborough, Sussex in early 60's.

Front row
second from left was called Jessie (We think)

If this helps anyone help me (!) I would be very grateful

Thank you
Paul
