Dear Mr. Parsons,
I am a decendant of W @ D Downey. My grandmother was a Downey and I have quite a bit of information ( Birth, marriage and death certificates) also different photos of the family and of course photos taken by W and D Downey. I was born in Sussex in England but now reside in California just north of San Francisco. I have been to England 3 times this year as my mother was not well but I do not expect to return until next year. Please contact me if you are interested in me sharing some of the info. that I have.

Hi Judy, I am the Great-grand son of Daniel and Mary Stratford Downey. My Grandfather Daniel Russell Downey migrated to Maryland, USA. He married Julia Adelaide Rowe, They had 4 children, Mary Adelaide Downey m Gealor in England, Daniel Russell Downey, Arthur James Rowe Downey, and my mother Charlotte Patricia Downey m. Wagner m. Parsons. Julia Rowe Downey died in 1915, and Aunt Mary was returned to England (Mary Downey raised her), my mother and her brothers stayed in Maryland.
I believed that Daniel Downey of W&D Downey was my great-grandfather but no proof. My mother had said that her grand father was "photographer to Queen Victoria" and from the English census I saw Mary Downey Living with her mother Mary Stratford and her brother-in-law William Downey, Victoria C Downey, Step-daughter, and May Downey were also living in the household.I have more information on the descendants of Daniel Russell Downey that I will share with you, if you like. Thank you for the information you have shared. Jim
