Person: BAMFORTH, Mrs Martha  (1843-1894)

Biographical summary of this person
Full name
Mrs Martha Ann BAMFORTH
Relevance of this person
model appearing in slide sets
Main period of activity

Name at birth was Martha Ann Beaumont; married James Bamforth 22 June 1865.

It's not certain that the person identified as a model in several Bamforth slide sets is Mrs Bamforth, but this seems very likely (she seems to stop appearing after 1894).
