A Victorian Bride Found In A Charity Shop
I found this beautiful old photo in a charity shop. On the back was written Meta Josephine Lacy (Nee Henry) Born 25th Nov 1869 Died 5th Oct 1961 Married 1892. With this starting point I was able to find out so much more.
Meta Josephine Henry was born on 25 November 1869 in Ireland to Sarah Lucy Hickson, age 33, and Thomas Shuldham Henry, age 33. She married Saumarez Dacre Lacy in October 1892 when she was 22 years old. Her son Alexander Dacre was born on 6 May 1894 in Weymouth, Dorset and her son Richard Saumarez was born on 2 December 1895 also in Weymouth, Dorset. Meta Josephine Henry died on 5 October 1961 in Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent, when she was 91 years old.
This beautiful young woman led such a full life into old age and because someone took the time to write on the back of the photo, all these years later the photo has come to life again.
