Possibly Mary Beaton

The note "possibly Mary Beaton" on the back of the photo was written by me; I added it when going through these old photos with my great aunt (Ivy Stainton nee Hambling) in the 1970s or 80s. (But I wasn't the person who coloured the eyes in!)

Everything about this says 1860s (the mention of 1862 on the back, the wide skirt and the backcloth), which would fit in with Mary: she was born in 1843 in Pagham, married in Chichester in 1864 and appears to have lived in Chichester until moving away c.1868-70.
The age and location therefore fit, though I can't see the resemblance to the pictures of her later in life.

Although Mary's parents and younger siblings (including her sisters) were living in Havant by 1861, Caroline was a lodger in Chichester by 1871 so it could be her, or it could be a sister-in-law: Ann Court was b. Chichester in 1845, Frances in abt. 1848.
