Summary expansion
The album opens with a portrait of F. [Frederick] Walpole, who served as Member of Parliament (M.P.) for North Norfolk from 1868 until his death eight years later. There are portraits of many of the Copemans, a prominent Norfolk family, including George Copeman of Dunham Lodge, Norfolk, who married Elizabeth Hare in 1859; Thomas Copeman; and Mary Copeman. Other Copemans include Harriot and Fred--twins?--and West Bernard Copeman. Lucy Copeman Hare, and her husband, the Rev. Edward Montague Hare (1831-1876), are shown, as are two of the Hare children: Henry (b. 1860), and Janet (b. 1863). Catherine Copeman married the Rev. Charles Philip Paul Jodrell in 1857. Another Copeman family member, identified as "S. Copeman," might have been immunologist, and developer of smallpox vaccine, Sydney M. Copeman, son of Rev. Arthur Charles Copeman, vicar of St. Andrew's Norwich, who lived in Radcliffe Gardens Square in London. Also related by marriage to the Copemans, through Sarah Frances Copeman Spurrell, is the Spurrell family, and pictured here are sisters Emily F. Spurrell, C.A. Spurrell, and Mary J. Spurrell (dated 1870), possibly sisters of Denham E. Spurrell, whose portrait has been removed. Portraits of Sarah, Harriet, and Agatha Simpson suggest that perhaps they were sisters as well. Representing the Rawlinson family are E.S.L. Rawlinson, A.G. Rawlinson, and the young boy, W.H. Rawlinson. The Rev. Samuel Hobson poses in his library, facing a portrait of Mary Hobson, perhaps his wife or sister. Also pictured are members of the Barker, Stone, Browne, and Warnes families, including J.H. Warnes of Bolwick Hall. Studios represented by the photographs include those of the London Stereoscopic & Photographic Company; Sawyer, and D.K. Griffith of Norwich; A.E. Mount of Beccles; and C.B. Hudson of Alborough
