    Anna Maria, who married Ffloyd Minter Peck in 1847, was a talented amateur artist. Anna is mentioned by Helen Connell in "Family Migration in the 1850s - the Hedley - Peck - Minter party". She is described as a "talented artist, having been awarded the silver medal (amateur) in 1841 by the Society of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce for her water colour drawing of fruit and flowers." It's not known whether this picture is the one which won the medal.

    "24c Brunswick Gardens
    London W8
    7th September 1957
    "Infact 1975" [RSHM's hand]

    Dear Robert,
    Some kind friend is getting my "scribblings" typed as I inherited
    both my grandfather's father's writing!!
    I will send one copy to Richard & [brother of RSHM]
    Annie, as early life in Australia may
    ammuse them, re how primitive some of it was!
    Perhaps you would pass on yours to Bridget to read.
    The beautiful picture you have was
    done by Anna Maria Robertson
    I think my mother's grandmother.
    I wonder does Burkes Peerage"

    The note on the right-hand side was made by RSHM and points to "I think my mother's grandmother" of the above letter:

    "No I think Anna Maria Robertson
    was Oenone's grandmother because
    1) I have a copy of the certificate of
    the marriage on 17/3/1847 of Floyd Minter
    Peck surgeon of Folkestone to Anna Maria
    Robertson.
    2) Debretts proof shows Oenone's
    maternal grandfather to be Floyd Minter
    Peck surgeon of Newmarket & Sale.
    3) Oenone's mother died aged 75 (in 1927) would have been born in
    1852.

    Robert Molesworth
    12/2/94
    Nephew Oenone."
