Re: Mortimer's Keynsham

Back in 2009, Paul Townsend via Flicker wrote a piece on Victorian Illegitimacy & Infanticide, which mentioned Annie Mortimer, daughter of Richard Mortimer at that time Manager of the Brass Works in Keynsham. A niece of Richards, Sarah Mortimer, married into the Rumley's in 1842 and although I have done quite a bit of research into the Mortimer's, I'm always looking for more. I noticed in the comments following the article that the photograph of Annie was borrowed by a the author from a member of the Mortimer family. I wondered if I could get in touch with this family, obviously there are privacy issues etc, but it's worth a try and any help would be appreciated. Tom
