I am looking through old inherited photos and have a number that belonged to my great aunt of people I don’t have any personal connection with, but the family seems to have lived in Nettlebed – possibly early in the 20th century and definitely in 1911. I wondered if it might be possible for you to ask if the family has any relatives still in the area who I might be able to forward the photos to as I am unable to keep them much longer.
The family surname is Patterson, and there were three daughters: Rosamund, Linda and Betty. I attach a sample of the photos – please share if you wish. I have others too. I believe, from an Ancestry record, that one of them may have died in Banbury in 1969 (or possibly their mother?). It would be very much appreciated if you could share this message and let me know of any feedback?
Many thanks and kind regards,
(My great aunt was Minnie Clapton, who worked as a kind of governess/companion/nanny to the girls)
