A couple of mystery photos

I wonder if anyone can help with these two mystery photos.


The group is labelled Miss and Mrs Woodhouse bible class 1891 and either Chesham or Kensington (two different notes). 4 of my Ching relatives seem to be there though I struggle to identify them!


The two men photograph was saved in a drawer in Cleave House Sticklepath. They took paying guests and were Methodist. I wonder if this photo was by way of thank you for a good stay?

Rev William Cowdell born 14 Dec 1853 Hinckley. Studied Didsbury College. Entered Methodist ministry 1878 – 1919. Address in 1912 was Louth. Rev Walter Lee entered Methodist ministry 1896 – 1941.

Photo taken in Okehampton Devon, I guesstimate around 1905 so perhaps one or both visited Sticklepath or was in the circuit? I would be grateful for any further information but was keen to make the photograph available to anyone who is interested.
