Joseph and Ann Calcraft's Family
Information from Ruby, Shirley and Michael Calcraft
This photograph shows the family of Joseph Calcraft and Ann Elizabeth Parnham. Joseph was a great, great grandson of William Calcraft who lived in Muston around 1740.
The four men across the back row are, from left to right, Arthur Calcraft (born 1889), John Henry Calcraft (known as Jack, 1881), Joseph Parnham Calcraft (known as Joe, 1878) and Thomas William Calcraft (known as Tom, 1880).
The centre row are Florence (known as Florrie, 1883), Ann Elizabeth (nee Parnham, 1855-1948), Joseph (1856-1918), Mary Ellen (known as Nellie, 1886) and Frank (1892).
In front are Albert (1893), Edward (1897) and George (1895).
The picture looks to be taken around 1899 or 1900, not long before Tom started out for Canada, to be followed by several of his brothers.
