Group at Hams

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - Q&A -

This pho­to­graph was found among my grand­mother’s pos­ses­sions. Un­for­tu­nately there is no date on it but it does say ‘Group at Hams’. Could you give me any idea when the pic­ture was taken and pos­si­bly where? We won­dered if it was a boys’ school? Lynn Bryant, by email

This photo is en­ti­tled ‘Group at Hams’ – but can you help Lynn Bryant find out more de­tails? Liverpool in 1849. On the cer­tifi­cate, his father is given as Charles Con­way and he was a mariner. I can­not find ei­ther on the 1841 census. I have found a pos­si­ble line with a Nathaniel Con­way, born to Charles and Re­becca Con­way in Ox­ford in 1818. The Mer­chant Sea­man’s Records come up with a Nathaniel Con­way, but while the Fam­i­lySearch web­site gives his place of birth as Ox­ford­shire and there­fore fits, Find­my­past comes up with Liverpool. Can any­one help me work out which line to take? Ron­ald Jones, by email
