As yet, only some of the individuals above have been identified: Standing from left to right are: Morrice King Man and his wife Jane Smart Walch and Morrice's brother Harry Edward Julius Man. Seated from left to right (maybe) are: Henriette Marie Phillipine Man (wife of Harry Edward Julius), next to Henriette is unknown but probably Emma Elizabeth Man who married Jane Smart Man's brother Charles Edward Walch. Last seated is size Septimus Man. The young children are Eliza Caroline and Emma Catherine, the daughters of Morrice King and Jane Smart. The years 1861 - 1864 were significant for this group: Henriette Marie died on Nov 15 1863. Emma Elizabeth died one day later on Nov 16 1863. Their deaths are not connected. Henriette Marie probably died as a result of complications giving birth to her daughter Harietta.; Emma Elizabeth died of tuberculosis. Both Morrice King and Harry Edward died in 1864.Morrice died in Tasmania while Harry died at Halstead Hall, Kent. Caroline Eliza, the daughter of Emma Elizabeth and Charles Edward Walch died in 1862. Squeezed between these years (1861 - 1864) were the births of Morrice and Harry's four daughters, all of whom survived to adulthood. The photograph must therefore have been taken some time before 1861, if Emma Elizabeth is the one seated in the middle.
