The person in this portrait may be associated with the Pardey family. Catherine (Kate) McKenzie married William Evamy Pardey in Victoria in 1854. Their children were: Caroline Evamy, born 1855; Charles William, 1858; Elizabeth Jane, 1859, and James McInnery,1862. The family lived in Geelong, Victoria, where William Pardey was a pharmacist. William Pardey divorced Catherine in 1865 for adultery and in 1866 married Ann Morrow.

Catherine's son, Dr James McInnery Pardey, was Surgeon Superintendent at the General Hospital, Launceston, until early Oct 1891, when he was succeeded by Dr Francis Drake. Dr Pardey married Florence Morrow on 22 Jun 1892 at St Augustine's Church, Inglewood, Victoria.

It is possible this image is of a relative of Dr Pardey's; the original album has K Pardy.
