Potentially 1883

Ferrymead House. The written description on the back of a photographic copy of this image reads; "Ferrymeade", 1883, when it was bought and lived in by Mrs Shearman's parents Mr & Mrs Bunting. It has been estimated that the elm tree was at that time more than 30 years old and part of the historic site.

Creator: Unknown Photographer . Photo moved from the possession of the Shearman family to the Hamilton Family. Sue Hamilton held the image until given to me to scan.
