The two children lived in Bridge House (it was pulled down in 1952), the impressive building pictured in the background, on the opposite bank of the River Nene. The children are aged around 12 and 4 in the picture. Their parents owned a brewery and held the provisions contract for the Napoleonic Prisoner of War camp at Norman Cross. Wright Thomas was in the militia and died young. Charlotte later married Thomas Alderson Cooke, and probably moved into his new town house in Priestgate, the building that is now the museum.
