William b. 1839 is the son of Michael and Elizabeth (Farmbrough) Rose (seen in a separate photo) and is the 2 x great grandson of my 6 x great grandfather Cozens Read.
William’s wife is Elizabeth Sarah Dodwell b. 1841.
I have included a transcript of Diary Extracts from Annie Humphreys and John Hughes Cox on another page here – see the menu on the right – and will add part of Annie’s diary extract here as it is appropriate!
“1864 Oct. 17th Today I suppose Miss Dodwell has changed her name into Mrs. Rose. I hope they will be happy and think in all probability they will. I believe them to be much attached to each other”.
