Finding the Faces, Pauline Family at Tod House, Victoria, 1889-91 Pt2

The second image of the family at the BC Archives is entitled “WS Goodwin Wedding” (B-02795). I stumbled on it, because as the title suggests, it is not clearly associated with the Paulin(e) family. Bessie Pauline married William Starr Goodwin on the 2 October 1889, so that dates the image definitively. It was clearly taken at Tod House where Bessie’s parents Frederick and Mary Pauline lived.

I have numbered the people, and have tried to identify those I know. I must say, until I was sure of the date (from their marriage certificate) I was sure the little baby (no 7) was Irene Paulin, but she would have been only a few months old, and her older sister Dorothy had already passed on. I was forgetting the Victorian habit of dressing the very young boys like girls- by the age- it was Harold. Again all assistance gratefully appreciated.

Finding the Faces, Pauline family at Tod House, Victoria 1889-92 Pt 1

The British Columbia Archives have two pictures of the family taken at the historic Tod House, which they owned until 1925. The first image is entitled “Three Generations of the Pauline Family at Tod House” (A-08840).

I am trying to identify all of the people in the image, so I have, below a numbered version of the image, and my best guesses as to who is pictured. I ask anyone vaguely related, who recognizes their kin in the image to contact me so I can add more names to this picture. I have also tentatively dated this photograph to 1891 from the estimated ages of the children of Ernest and Emma Paulin, from whom I am descended, and have many more images of these people.
