Albert was listed as being a ‘waiter’ on Amy’s marriage to Charles Kendall James in 1896:-


Charles & Amy James were at home in 73 Woodlawn Rd, Fulham, London on the night of 2 Apr 1911 along with her brother William Ernest Trim.


Charles & Amy had been married 14 years & had one child who had died. Dorothy Mary James had been born in the last quarter of 1897 and while visiting her maternal grandparents in Shorrolds Rd, Fulham was baptised at St John’s Church, Walham Green, Fulham on the 10 Jan 1898. Her death was registered soon after in the 1qtr of 1898 at Fulham RD.

So it seems there won’t be any descendants to claim Amy’s photograph but I’m sure there will be some family out there who are descended from any one of her five siblings:-

Beatrice Ellen 1867-1948
Albert Stedman 1868-1897
Tom Parker 1872-1953
Ada Fanny Elizabeth 1875-?
William Ernest 1879-1969

Their father, Albert, was born in West Cowes on the Isle of Wight about 1840. He was aged 8 mths in the 1841 census & living with his widowed mother, brother William and half sister Susan Parker aka Trim. Maria Parker married William Trim on 1 Jan 1832 at Northwood on the Isle of Wight.

Albert Trim married Ellen Stedman in the 3qtr 1865 in Kensington.
