    Who was Doris?

    I've got a few postcards in the collection, some came from one seller who inherited the cardboard box of family stuff from a deceased aunt but knows nothing of the pictures beyond they could be either/or Rowell and Brown family from Coalville. One picture "Best of Love, Doris), appears to be 1917 though the other I can only pin down to 1902-1923 based on the photographer's name.


    I can't find a marriage for a Doris Rowell/Brown or a marriage of a Doris to a Rowell/Brown in the Ashby de la Zouch district, or a likely one in Leicestershire for that matter. I'd just love to work out who she is as I'm sure most of the cards I have connect to her and her family.

    There is another card with the J Goulson, Coalville 17 mark. I wondered if it was a family sitting at the studio as some others have the number 154 so it doesn't appear to be a date.

    Not sure its right but all I can see.

    Doris S Rowell marries Harry C Matchett Dec 1924 A D L Z

    Children Male born Jun 1925
    Aubrey C Jun 1926.

    A bit out on the dates you were thinking of, Just wondering if Doris's photo was sent to someone who was in WW1. Might not have been her boyfriend but her brother or father,

    That's the thing about the 1917 on the pic, assuming it's correct there is a Doris Rowell. The baby pic is undated but John Goulson the photographer was definitely gone by 1923.

    Two possibles for Doris, one born 1900 and Doris S, born 1904. Doris S married the Matchett chap in 1924 which throws that 1917 date out the window, she is older than 13 in that pic.


    Are there any Doris Rowell entries in the 1911?




    I see Chrissie was ahead of me there.

    For reference, here is the marriage, do you think the signature is similar to the postcard ?
