Family Friday: Hayward/Head/Rogers

Today I'm sharing some family photos of an English friend of mine.

The first couple are her paternal great grandparents Emma Hayward (1839-1920) and Thomas Head (1842-1919), both of whose families had been farmers in and around Kintbury in Berkshire for generations.

The young woman in the photo below is their daughter Caroline Head (1875-1948), probably taken while she was a housemaid in Penge, Kent,* before her marriage in 1903.

And here is Caroline again with her husband Albert Henry Rogers (1882-1963) taken in the 1940s, probably in Hatherope in Gloucestershire where Albert had become the gamekeeper on a large estate. This is how my friend remembers her grandparents.

*Sometimes in Surrey, other times in Kent; now part of Greater London.
