Have you been on britishnewspapersarchive.co.uk? Just found references to my ancestor Abraham being convicted of stealing growing vegetables in Bristol, and other such skeletons in the cupboard(s)!. I have yet to pay for anything in full, but will no doubt be doing so quite soon. It looks like a great resource, not only for genealogists, but also for anyone interested in history.

Is this woman a Dupont or Granter?

Does anybody recognize the woman in this tintype photograph given to me by my Aunt Winifred Granter (1919-1993) in about 1992-3. Aunt Win said she was a Dupont, but I can't remember if Win explained her connection with us Granters. By the date of the popularity of tintypes, say 1860-90, it might have been taken in Bristol or London. (The original is the reverse image, as I understand this is how tintypes were processed).
Bit of a long shot I know.
Regards, Jim Granter

Joseph Andrew Granter portrait from WW1

Here's a great studio portrait of Joseph Andrew Granter:

It works when pasted into your address bar(I think that's what it's called)! It's in the public domain so you can copy it.
