The picture above is of my great great grandparents, John and Mary Stacey, and probably their 4 youngest children.
Their youngest son George was born in 1882 so that would date this photograph mid to late 1880s.
I will start my thoughts with John and Mary who are the maternal branch of my family.

Ravenfield, then and now.

More old postcards of Ravenfield Village taken in about 1905 together with descriptions written by Mr G E Osborn in 1978. Also photographs of the same places that I took myself in 2006.  I am sure there have been a lot of changes since Mr Osborn wrote his descriptions 34 years ago.
