|Family History||It possible that photographer W D Groundsell was the William Drake Groundsell (c1827-1917) from Wootton found living at Pencil Cottage Shanklin in 1881, but in that and other census returns he is described as a house decorator. Further evidence is required to prove that they are the same person.|
