  • These are wonderful photos, thank you so much for publishing them – and indeed all the hard work that underpins this entire website. More information, or captions, anything at all would be very welcome on those photos that have none.

  • Yes – this is the Faudel Phillips School in Hertford (class II) taken in 1904. The same picture – with this information – appears in the book entitled “Images of Hertfordshire” by David Mander published in 1998 by Sutton Publishing of Stroud.

  • The caption suggests that this is Capel Manor, presumably a 17th century portrait.

  • This is North Victor Cecil Dalrymple-Hamilton, who attended Eton and is listed in the Eton School Register 1893 to 1899 where he is recorded as “son of Major the Hon. N. Dalrymple, formerly of Clydesdale, Windsor.” Who Was Who gives the following information:- Col Sir North Victor Cecil DALRYMPLE-HAMILTON, KCVO 1952 (CVO 1937); CB 1949 Born 1883 [Westminster]- the eldest son of the late Col Hon. North de Coigny Dalrymple-Hamilton, MVO, JP, DL, Scots Guards, and the late Marcia Kathleen Anne (youngest daughter of the late Hon. Sir Adolphus Frederic Octavius Liddell, KCB). Married 1910 [London], Lady Marjorie Alice Coke (the eldest daughter of 3rd Earl of Leicester) Died 16 Feb 1953 [Ayrshire] According to the death notice in the Times of 17th February 1953, he inherited the family property in Ayrshire in 1906, and he appears to have lived there most of his life. A very interesting person, but I can’t see a connection with Hertfordshire??

  • Is this the Faudel Phillips Infants School at Hertford? It later became the Abel Smith School.

  • Presumably Barley School? And the date looks like 1923
