A charismatic Georgian family portrait of Henry Corser (1798-1863), an ironmonger and grocer from Whitchurch, Shropshire.
Henry's father, Richard Corser, had a shop at 5 High Street, Whitchurch (which is now a charity store), and Henry followed in his dad's footsteps by taking over the business. The census' of 1841 and 1861 show him owning the village ironmongers and he also seems to have an apprentice working alongside him.
In 1841, he married Caroline Saxton and had a son, Henry, the following year. After Henry's death in 1863, Caroline appears to have never remarried.
