    The man with the hat is James Wanless (b. 1850, son of Joseph Wanless & Mary Ann Robinson). The woman with the 2 dogs at her feet is Maria Jane (Wanless) Potter, sister of James Wanless. The boy with the pony is her son William Potter (1892-1951). The woman at the right is probably James & Maria's sister Harriet, as she lived with them at Blakiston Hall.
