About this image
Family servant (possibly daughter?) of John Cheadle Quant (1849-1931). Entertainer from Bonsall, he had a career in music hall and theatre. Image taken by W N Slatham of Matlock, who had a studio in Matlock from 1880 until c 1932.
An Alice Maud Mary Ellis, born c 1865, Woore, Staffordshire is living with John Cheadle Quant in the 1911 census at Nether Green House, Clatterway, Bonsall. She is described as a servant and single. Alice Maud Mary Ellis was baptised 1863 to Alfred Edwin and Mary Ellis in Woore, Staffordshire. The lady in this image fits that year of birth. It seems unlikely that this lady is the daughter of John Cheadle Quant and is more likely the family servant. (Additional information very kindly supplied by Helen Heaton).
