John Smith has sent an e-mail to the Ecton Village Website
Hello, I have just purchased a postcard sized picture of Ecton
schoolchildren which I think was probably taken around 1891
depicting 19 children and the school teacher, I believe I can
identify three of the children via my genealogy studies of Ecton
ancestors. I will be happy to send you a high resolution scan of
the picture if you would like one for your web site.
I think that the girl sat directly below the teacher is Norah
Lydia Tipler born 1881 (my grandmother), the girl in the back row
nearest the wall is, I think, Florence Dexter, and the girl by the
teachers left side I think is Ada Clark born 1884. I also
believe that each of these children also has siblings in the same
photo but I have no way of identifying them.
I think I am right in saying that the teacher is Mrs Sarah Ann
Barnes and I think that the picture was probably taken circa 1891
Regards, John Smith
