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).
Andrew Wootton, taken about 1903.
