If you are seeking information on Arthur Clegg Weston, I can provide you some details as he was the brother of my great grandmother Frances Harriet (nee Weston) Handcock. Through genealogical research I have obtained several digital copies of photos he took of his sister and her family during the 1890s. A second cousin of mine who is resident of Lower Hutt, New Zealand is in possession of the originals. in addition to photographs, my cousin has obtained various other bits of information about him, including newspaper clippings. Arthur Weston was born in 1852 in Manchester, Lancashire, England and died in St. Martin in the City of London on Dec 4, 1913. He is buried in the West Northwood Cemetery, in the London Borough of Lambeth.
