Judging by relative ages, Fred is probably the boy directly behind little Grace. It is assumed the eldest son, Charles Henry is the centre of the back row, and James Alfred (Alf), great grandfather of Any Halton who provided the photo, and a communist like Fred, is one of the two on either side of Charles.

Anne Marie Sherburn in Later Life Adrian Warburton has sent me the following photos. Anne Maria Warburton was born in 1854 to George Warburton and Maria nee Dodd of the Nottinghamshire clan. She married an American, William Henry Sherburn at Worksop Priory in 1870. William was a merchant from Wisconsin and the couple subsequently moved to America. The cover of a bible first presented to Anne Maria by her mother, and repurposed nearly 100 years later. I’m not sure who these two people are. I guess George Sherburn might be Anne Maria’s son, but the photo doesn’t include the lady’s name. She doesn’t look too dissimilar to Anne Maria, but I can’t be sure. Waltham Pocket Watch Thomas Warburton’s old Waltham pocket watch. Thomas emigrated to the West Virginia from Nottinghamshire, probably in the 1830s. He was the father of Thomas Blackwell Warburton. He died in 1866.
