Descendants of William Hunnisett (1785-1851)
Link to William Hunnisett in the Family Groups
Benjamin's & Louisa's Children
Benjamin Hunnisett and his wife Louisa had 12 children, all of whom are pictured in the above photograph, possibly taken in 1905 on the occasion of their father's funeral. The only ones that have been positively identified are Arthur (standing, 4th from right) and Harry (far right).
It has been suggested that of the daughters, Fanny is on the left and Louisa on the right. It would seem likely that the two sons seated were the eldest which would be William and Thomas. The third son James was probably standing far left. The youngest son, Herbert, appears to be on the right, between Harry (on the end) and probably Frederick with the medals. Frederick had, presumably served in South Africa during the Boer wars. That leaves Ben, George and Charles between James and Arthur.
Any help with positive identification would be appreciated. The photo was supplied by one of Arthur's grandsons, David Hunnisett.
Harry Hunnisett (far right in the group photo above) was a cab driver in Eastbourne where he worked for Chapman's. He is pictured here with his cab. He married in 1901 and had a daughter Jessie Victoria (always known as Queenie) in 1902.
He was called up in the First World War and served with the Essex Regiment. He died in Gaza on 3rd November 1917 and was buried in grave B 42, Deir El Belah War Cemetery, Palestine.
This photograph was supplied by Stephanie Goffin, Harry's great grand-daughter.
