Three generations of the Litchfield family outside White's Farmhouse. In the foreground stands Francis and Elizabeth's married daughter, Annie, with her daughter Doris. Annie was married to Elias Townsend, landlord of the Prince Regent.

 

Doris was  born in 1913, so this photo was probably taken in about 1916. Her parents ran the Prince Regent pub. She and her mother are standing by the cottage of her uncle, Reuben Litchfield.
