Notes on the image of'Esther Edwards'


This photograph found amongst the effects of her son Tom Knight Snr. is attributed to Esther Edwards. We are not positive that this is her and if not Esther then this is possibly Henry's aunt, his mother's half-sister, Eliza Jane PAYNE nee NETHWAY. The fact that she bears resemblance to my father means that she possibly looks like Eliza Nethway nee GOSLING who was Henry's grandmother.

 Uncle Tom thought the world of his Aunt Eliza Jane and visited her home a lot, in Clarence Place, Cotham, Bristol. It is highly likely that he had a portrait of her, as her son a photographer, seems to have been a good friend of Uncle Tom.
