Mrs Seymour George

A carte-de-visite portrait of Mrs Seymour George (1841-1912), formerly Miss Gertrude Clarke.

Born in 1841 at Brighton, Gertrude Anne Danvers Clarke was the second daughter of Colonel John Frederick Sales Clarke of the Royal Scots Greys (died 1856).

She appears on the 1851 census staying at 10, Cornwall Terrace in Marylebone, the home of her grandmother Margaret Terry. Also present on the night of the census were her six siblings and their mother, Margaret Clarke (née Terry).

In 1863 she married Francis Seymour George, a barrister-at-law, son of Philip George, a solicitor. The couple appear on the 1871 census living at Windsor Road, Bray, in Berkshire, with their three young sons.

Mrs Gertrude George died, aged 71, on 20 November 1912 at 168 Cromwell Road, London.

Photographed on 25 April 1865 by Camille Silvy of London.

[From an album compiled by her cousin, Astley Fellowes Terry.]
