I have pictures scanned from an old photo album of "Eardley Maitland Major R.A." a picture of his wife titled Mrs. Maitland and another picture titled "Eardley Maitland's" children. No dates on the pictures although others in the album are from mid 1800's .The other pictures from most studio marks are taken in England ,London area's.The Eardley Maitland pictures have no studio marks.

I looked a bit on-line and found a record of a Lt. Eardley Maitland in the 3/8 Royal Artillary , he won a Indian Mutiny Medal 1857-1859. He served in India of course. I found no other info .

There are also pictures of a Lionel Maitland who died at age 12 in 1873. An Edward Maitland , John Maitland and a space for Rev. C.D. Maitland his picture has fallen out and is now among the loose unidentified. his wifes picture is still there no first or maiden name only "Mrs. Maitland"

The album ended up in Canada at a garage sale . There are several pictures with Canadian studio marks . One very old picture of an unidentified man in uniform is marked Halifax Nova Scotia.
Another is 2 small children marked Calgary N.W. T.
Dates unknown ,but they are postcard type
