Unidentified sitter

Photographed by Mrs Williams of Wolverhampton.

Sarah Williams was born in Oakengates, Shropshire, in 1841. As she married a Thomas Williams she kept her maiden name. The couple appear on the 1871 census living at Talbot Place in Wolverhampton. Thomas’s profession is recorded as ‘Master Photographer’ and the space for Sarah’s profession is blank. Two weeks before the census was taken she had given birth to their daughter Frances Mary.

When the 1881 census was taken 10 years later, both Thomas and Sarah gave ‘Photographer’ as their profession. They were now living at Highfield House in Tettenhall, Wolverhampton.
