Sayes family at Rose Cottage, Ellwood, Gloucestershire.

A photo of a family outside Rose Cottage, Ellwood.

I attach a picture of Elijah and Emily Sayes of Ellwood (plus, presumably, family) at their cottage, then known as Rose Cottage (changed name to Oakland House in 1979).

The view is looking at the southern corner of the house.  The garden is full of potato plants.

Mr Sayes bought the house in 1891 for £140.  He died on 11/12/1927 and the house was subsequently sold in 1933 by James Richard Sayes and Leslie Sayes to John William Nash for £100.

Keith Smart added: "Leslie Sayes was suspected at one time by the police to have been involved with Beatrice Pace in the death of her husband Harry Pace".
