Fred's family facts & photos, Part VI: Fred's Mum and Dad?

Most of these photos were in a studio - but as an older couple (top) they are against a plain background. One (seated, lower right) appears to be outdoors. We assume these are all of Fred's parents, and that the single baby is their first, Fred's 'Ciss', named Theresa, like her mother. Just as their oldest son bore the same names as his father, Frederick James.

We can now put some approximate dates on these thanks to research by reader 'Greyfox'. 
1. No printed information on card.
2, 3 & 4. Probably 1880-87.
5. Database of London photographers has many addresses for a Myles Garner, but none at the location on the card. His son, also William Myles Garner, was also a photographer. But none of the traced addresses matches the Notting Hill Gate shown on the photo. 
6. A Simmons, 1882-1888. (Before he opened a second studio.)
7. No information on card.
