THE WOOTTON FAMILY


Lavinia, 1828 - 29 January 1907 - daughter of wheelwright John Wootton and sister of Ephraim Wootton, friend of Henry Mundy's and mentioned in his memoirs.  (A picture of her sister Caroline can be seen here.)

Lavinia is thought to be the tallest of the three girls in bonnets depicted in the picture "A Village Choir" by Thomas Webster.  There is a striking similarity in facial features although this photograph was obviously taken many years after Webster recorded the Bow Brickhill villagers in his famous painting.






This family group includes seven of Lavinia's children (Daisy, Thomas, Frederick, Agnes Louisa, Mary Ann, Amy, Lilly Grace) and  two of her granddaughters (Enid, Elsie Amy).
