Miss Emily Hamond

Miss Emily Hamond

A carte-de-visite portrait of Emily Hamond (1840-1916).

Born in 1840 at West Acre in Norfolk, Emily Hamond was a daughter of Anthony Hamond of High Hall, West Acre.

In 1864 she married Charles Wigley Wicksted (1837-1906), later Master of the Ludlow Foxhounds. The couple appear on the 1871 census living at Ludlow St Lawrence in Shropshire. By 1891 they had moved to Bromfield in Shropshire.

Mrs Emily Wicksted died, aged 75, on 12 January 1916 at Yarpole near Leominster in Hertfordshire. She left effects valued at £8,078.

Photographed in 1860 by Camille Silvy of London.

From an album probably compiled by either George Charles Pratt (1799-1866), 2nd Marquess Camden or by his son, John Charles Pratt (1840-1872), from 1866 3rd Marquess Camden.
