Wordless Wednesday - Great Great Grandparents Mucklow

John Mucklow and Hannah James of Alcester, Warwickshire area. They are my great-great grandparents and I descend from their daughter Sarah. John was a gamekeeper at Coughton Court.
Thank you to Danny Packman, a new found cousin, for sending me the photo and giving me permission to post. I had received this photo before but not with the two together and I couldn't see the details of the house behind.

  1. I'm intrigued with this photo, Janet, thanks for sharing it. Compare your gg-grandfather's clothing with those of other gamekeepers that I wrote about on Photo-Sleuth recently. They always seem to wear gaiters, which is not surprising really, considering the English weather.

    1. Brett thank you for letting me know about your article that pointed out details of the gamekeeper's clothing. When I write about John, I will talk about his clothes.
