Newtown Church, wedding
31st August 1897, Wedding photograph of John Henry Wilkinson and Amelia Yates at Newtown Church. To the right of the bride sit the grooms parents, Martha and Edwin Wilkinson, who were publicans and ran several public houses in the Newtown/Burmantofts area. They had previously run the Primrose Inn at number 1 Primrose Road and at the time of the photograph were at the White Horse Hotel. Martha Wilkinson continued as publican there after her husbands death in 1898.

User Comments:

Ian Wilkinson

The woman to the right of the Bride is indeed Martha Wilkinson, but the man on the right of her is not Edwin Wilkinson, but probably Joseph Yates, the Brides father. Edwin Wilkinson was not at the wedding as it is suspected he was incapacitated. Neither the Grooms Father nor the Brides Mother appear on this picture.
