These are the daughters of John I. Thornycroft, unfortunately it is not known which daughter is which in the photo and there is one other unknown person in the photo. The daughters are: Edith Alice (b.1871); Blanche Coules (b.1873); Mary Beatrix (b.1875); Ada Frances (b.1877); Eldred Elizabeth Anne (b.1879). The photo was possibly taken in the grounds of the family home Steyne Wood House, Bembridge, Isle of Wight around 1895.
