James & Amy seem to be the only children of Richard Edward Winfield (a shoemaker) and Emily Louise Clifford who were married on 15 Nov 1874 at St Nicholas Church in Rochester, Kent. [Richard was the son of John Winfield and Louisa Woolley (married 1827) born c1834 in Chatham, Kent. His mother, Louisa, married William Montague in 1858 after John died in 1849.]

Births Dec 1875
Winfield  Amy Louisa    Medway  2a 474

Births Sep 1879
Winfield  James Edward    Medway  2a 554

The four of them are at home in Gillingham, Kent in 1881, 2 years later father Richard died aged 49. In subsequent census the two children are living with mother Emily, still in Gillingham.

Amy died unmarried in 1953 and as the death date of James isn’t filled in on the back of his photo I presume he died after Amy.

Deaths Jun 1953
Winfield  Amy Louisa   77  Chatham  5b 233

In 1912 James married Elsie Hutchings, nothing further is known about them except that in 1901 James was listed as a Shipwright.
