Group photo of John Lemon Payne and wife Mary Ann Payne-nee Pryer with some of their grand children at Elm Tree Farm. The woman standing is possibly Mrs. Plowman who was the house keeper at the farm and looked after almost everything.
The tall young boy is more than likely to be Sidney Payne aged about 12 yrs. He was the first child of my grandmother Clara Genise Payne but was brought up as the child of John Lemon Payme and his wife Mary Ann, her parents. Sidney was born in 1890 but died in battle in the Great War in 1917.
