Not Brentford

Photo, possibly Ann Burfoot

Ross Fitzpatrick from Australia has sent a scan of an old albumen photo of a lady taken in Brompton which he believes to be Ann Burfoot. Ann was born in Isleworth in 1855, daughter of Benjamin Burfoot and his wife Jane (nee Powell).

Ross asks if anyone has a connection to this family and if they can confirm that the portrait is of Ann. Please get in touch if you can help. He has sent the following details of the Burfoot family:
