HALL / GOSLING / BURGESS FAMILY. A group of four silhouette portraits taken c 1803-1811, all in matching wood and pressed brass frames 110 x 130mm., and all with paper labels giving details of the sitters as follows:

1. "Saml. Hall Senr. aged 82 1803 Died July 12th 1806 aged 85 at 11 O'C at night. ------------- to his wife 1771 aged 5------ Betty their daughter died 13th January 1815 aged 63".

2. "Sarah Hall Daughter of James and Nancy Gosling . Wife of Samuel Hall Jnr. Died Nov.25th 1828 aged 57".

3. "Saml. Hall Junr. Aged 46 1804. Died July 6th 1817 aged 59 yrs."

4. "Thos. Burgess Jnr. Sep. 1811 aged 22. Born 28 Apr. 1789" and in pencil "Jennie M.Arnold Oct. 30 1906".

One frame with the brass complete; two with cracks and losses; and one with substantial losses. Reflections in the images unfortunately give the silhouettes a blotchy effect.


The Hall family and associated families they married into, can be located to the parish of Prestbury, Cheshire. James Hall married Nancy Gosling in 1790, while the connection with Burgess appears to be through the marriage of Thomas Burgess to Lydia Hall on 24th November 1811.
