This woman (my great grandmother) is Martha HAWLEY (nee COLE), b. 1822 Cotton End, Bedfordshire, married James Sibthorpe HAWLEY in 1857. They emigrated to NZ on the 'Palmyra' in 1858.
Did James Hawley open his own photography business in Napier? I have a family pic mounted by Hawley & Co Napier and am trying to date it. The dress appears late 1890's.
Hi Geoff,James Hawley was never a photographer, it would have been his son Alfred Sibthorpe Hawley.Alison Brown
