  2. Henry King Armstrong: E.H.A. Newman's obituary describes Henry King Armstrong in the following words: "Mr.Newman's mother [Sophia Baskerville Armstrong] was the daughter of Dr. [Henry King] Armstrong, son of the Rev.Armstrong, Rector of Stamford-le-Hope, a direct descendant of "Johnnie" Armstrong, the Laird of Gilnochie, chief of the Armstrong Clan."

    The photo below was sent to me by Ian Caldwell in April 2011. The photo came from a collection that had once belonged to his great grandmother Edith but which is grandmother (Helen) was unable to indentify. Ian speculates that the photo might be of Henry King Armstrong since it was taken by a John Jabez Edwin Myall of 224 Regent Street London. Ian reports that Myall's studio was opened in 1852 and that he opened abother one at 91 King's Road Brighton in 1864. Both addressess are printed on the back of the photo so it must have been taken between 1864 and 1869 when he died, if this is H.K. Armstrong. Certainly Henry Kong Armstrong is the only person with close Scottish that appears in the Newman/Jekyll brances of this family tree, but it remains pure supposition that this photo mght be him.
