"Jane Liddle, changed her name to Mrs J. B. Doughty.
Barque Blenheim. 19th Jan'y 1866"

It's possible the photo was taken before her marriage in 1866, as she's
not wearing a wedding ring in the photo. She was 18 years old in 1865.

Mary Jane Liddle (1847-1910) married master mariner John Booth Doughty (1841-1875)
in London on January 19th 1866. They were both from Whitby, England.

Mary Jane was the daughter of domestic servant Jane Wardale (1805-1884)
and shipwright/builder/carpenter William Liddle (1803-1859).

John Booth Doughty was the son of Ann (1807-1873) and Richard Doughty (1804-1876)

John Booth was an apprentice in 1857, at the age of 16. In 1871 he was captain of the Bachel Latinga.
He died in 1875 in London, aged 33. Jane then took over a shop for wool in Whitby from Mrs. Thistle.
She sold Berlin wool, babies and children's outfits, ladies corsets, dress improvers, cuffs, collars,
frills, tibs, Angolas, and Worsteds in all shades. She also did machine work.

In 1870 they had a daughter, Jane Booth, but she died in 1872.
