Further research has revealed that Walter GOBBITT's wife Ellen (née HADINGHAM) was a once-removed cousin of the four children in her photograph, namely:

William Reginald ALLAN b. 5 Aug. 1893 (3 years old in Aug. 1896)
Ruby Evelyn ALLAN b. 18 Sept. 1895 (11 months)
Irene Hazelton PARISH b. 11 March 1895 (17 months)
Kathleen Muriel PARISH b. 15 Aug. 1893 (3 years)

Reggie (1893-c.1990) and Ruby (1895-1972; m. Wilfred LAISTER 1918) were born and baptized at Hillingdon, Middlesex, their parents being Archie Rockhill ALLAN (1866-1953) and Mary Ellen SMITH (c.1869-1941).

Irene (1895-c.1981) and Kathleen or Kitty (1893-1976) were daughters of Archie's sister Katie ALLAN (1869-1900) and John Hazelton PARISH (1850-1926) of Woodbridge, Suffolk.

Archie and Katie were children of William ALLAN (1841-1926), the head gardener to Lord SUFFIELD of Gunton Park, near Cromer, and Hannah Eliza née ROCKHILL (1843-c.1905). Hannah was a sister of Ellen GOBBITT's mother, Louisa Ann HADINGHAM (c.1830-1906). Their parents (the common ancestors of all these cousins) were William ROCKHILL of Uggeshall, Suffolk (c.1805-1867) and Louisa LARTER (c.1804-1905), who married at Sotherton, Suffolk, in 1827.
