Aicken family 1845
« on: March 02, 2014, 10:47:15 PM »


I require assistance identifying the people in this photo - I have names but unable to identify who is who. I believe the picture was taken around 1845 and I am 99% sure the elderly man seated is Peter Aicken of Belfast (Regent Street) born 1800 and died July 29, 1875. His wife Margaret Grahames also seated on his right.  I believe the remaining woman are (based on Peter's will ) his daughters Ann Jane (married to John Hyde), Sarah (married to William John Thompson), Mary (married to William Reid Stewart) and Margaret (who later married to John Malcolm). I have not been able to identify which woman is who nor have I been able to track their whereabouts or lineage. The only exception is Margaret who is my 2nd great grandmother.

Does anyone recognize this phote?

If they are the folk you believe they are, then I  think 1845 is a bit early.  The three daughters all married between 1863 and 1868 and the elderly couple are well into their 60s at least.  I would pitch it about 1870.

If there are any images posted above that are important to you, take your own copy - I cannot guarantee they will appear indefinitely.

Distinct resemblance to Tony Aicken the scaffolder :)

You are so right - I had a number of dates written down and it can't be 1845 as you mentioned due to the birth years of the daughters. 1870 sounds about right
