|I've been trying to work out who's who in my great great aunt Agnes Fox's scrapbook and there's lots of photos of the Shuttleworth family, inlcuding Dorothy Shuttleworth
Dorothy married Archibald Knightley Graham:
There’s a portrait of Dorothy (Mrs Archie Graham) painted by the famous Hungarian artist Philip de Lászlo (1869-1937). In the painting she wears a Victorian diamond brooch which was sold not long ago by Bonhams.
The catalogue notes explain that Dorothy was renowned for her great beauty as a young women in India, and was known by her peers as “The Belle of Bombay”. She married Archie Graham in In 1910. He was director of John Graham & Co, dealers in jute and other raw materials from the Indian subcontinent, and they lived in Airthrey Castle and London. In 1919, Dorothy returned to India for a couple of years with her husband where their third daughter was born, before returning to London.
The Roots web link suggest that she was born about 1848.

I started a family history blog to try and find out a little more about our mysterious great great great grandfather George Goldsmith Kirby. I haven't got much further in this direction have joined a few dots on The Peerage site.
