Anna Maria Robertson 1823 - 1859

The back of the still life painting. On the left-hand side is a letter stuck to the rear of the painting from Oenone Palmer to her nephew Robert Stanley Hickman Molesworth (RSHM):

"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."
