Card with images of red-robed angel 'Suffer little children to come unto me', a baby being baptised at the font and Jesus with children and halo'ed beings Doris Edith COWNDEN was baptised at St Faith's church, Old Brentford, on April 2nd 1905 and her parents received this card at the ceremony. The 'Sponsors' were 'The parents'.

The parish registers for St Faith's ( show five babies were baptised on the day, including Frederick Albert, Edith's elder brother, born 29th November 1903. Edith was just over a month old at baptism, being born on March 1st 1905.

The parents were Frederick Charles & Louisa, of Glenthorne, Darwin Road and the father was a 'tunman', presumably for a local brewery. By the time of the 1911 census the family had moved to Acton.

The card is signed by W.A.HEWETT, who was recorded in a local 1907 Kellys directory: 'William Arthur Steains Hewett MA, St Faith's Parsonage, Windmill Road'.

The card was printed by E Kaufmann, Lahr, Baden for the S.P.C.K. and the design was 'No. 139'
