William Raymond.

My great great grandfather. My mother's mother's father's father.

 

 

William Raymond was born in Scotland 1824. He died in Kidderminster, Worcestershire, England 1909. If he was 18 when this photo was snapped then the photograph is about 177 years old (that is in about 2020).

In 1881 his residence is recorded as being Kidderminster Old Borough, Worcestershire, England.

 

Above is an old handwritten piece of paper outlining William's children as recorded by my mother, Joan. So my great great grandmother's name was Elizabeth Adams born 18th August 1823 at Stourbridge, Kidderminster.

She married William on Christmas morning in 1849 in the New Meeting Chapel, Church Street, Kidderminster. The chaplain's name at the wedding service was Reverend Gipson Children.

I have no photograph of Elizabeth, my great great grandmother, but I do have her lineage going back to 1638.

No kings or royalty but farmers and hunters.
