Elizabeth Lovewell Laws1

#25633, b. 7 February 1814, d. September 1901

Sent to me by Jeremy GILES (jeremygiles@icloud.com), who says ~~ On the back it says: “Grandmother Blake D.M.J”. It was taken by W. R. Miller a professional photographer working at 182 King Street, Great Yarmouth. I take D.M.J to be Doris Margaret Jones nee Giles, my Great-aunt. So the lady in the photograph will be Elizabeth Lovewell Blake nee Laws.

  • Father: James Laws b. 1765, d. 25 Nov 1825
  • Mother: Ann Silvers d. 17 Aug 1816
