Notes

"Almost certainly Thomas Aislabie Vigne, son of Augustus & Caroline and father of Frank, Caroline Sibella & Percy Aislabie Vigne"

Sadly the years are wrong for this to be Thomas, who was born in 1837. He would've been 22 at the time this photo was made. His father Augustus, born in 1808, would've been 51 and a more likely candidate.

Thomas Aislabie Vigne (1837-1913) was the son of Augustus Vigne (1808-1875) and Caroline Aislabie (1810-1876). Both Augustus and Caroline were children of cricketers. Augustus and Caroline lived in London, where this photo was possibly made.
