Miss Elizabeth Clayton

Miss Elizabeth Clayton

Identified in the Silvy daybooks as Miss E. Clayton, an inked inscription verso in a period hand identifies the sitter as Mrs Allgood.

The marriage was announced in The Times on 28 July 1862: 'On the 24th inst. at Warden, Northumberland, by the Rev. Francis Henry Laing and the Rev. James Allgood, George Allgood, fourth son of the late Robert Lancelot Allgood Esq., of Nunwick, to Elizabeth, youngest daughter of the late Rev. Richard Clayton, M.A.'

The couple appear on the 1871 census living at Alnmouth in Northumberland. George Allgood was a retired army officer. By the time the next census was taken in 1881 he had become a widower.

Photographed on 24 May 1862 by Camille Silvy of London.
