Winifred and Kathleen Boxshall

Who are Winifred and Kathleen Boxshall and where do they fit into the Weeks family? Thanks to Eric Marshall from Australia, it turns out that Winifred and Kathleen Boxshall were the daughters of Frank Arkwell Boxshall and Annie Helena Chamberlain who married in 1891, the marriage being registered in Woolwich, London. In 1901 the family were living in Epsom, Surrey and in 1911 Kingston, Surrey. Annie Helena was the sister of Mary Ann Letitia Chamberlain who married Henry Thomas Weeks. The Boxshall sisters are Helen Willliams (nee Lambert) first cousins twice removed.
The Clarke Family, Suffolk

It is believed that the person sitting with the dog on her lap is Mary Clarke (nee Wilson.Ward) and that her daughter Beatrix is the young lady wearing glasses sitting next to her. If anyone can verify, or dispute, this and/or can add any further information we would be most grateful.
