Help with old pictures

Hi, I would appreciate any help with the following pictures.

The first is of one of the Hornigold family. My grandmother was Kerrenhappuch Hornigold, born 1866, daughter of William Hornigold and Peace Coe. We think that the picture is one of three people. Her afore mentioned father William, or her brother Charles Hornigold, born 1856, who married Elizabeth Ann Baxter, or her Granddad Charles Hornigold born 1802 who married Mary Thompson.

On the Cobb side of the family my Granddad Henry William Cobb had a saddlery shop in what is now Dennys chip shop. The picture of it still attached to the pub is self explanatory. The other picture is a mystery as it looks like a different building. He was apprentice to Coe's harness and saddle makers and we thought he set up his own business in Gaywood as soon as he left Coe's. However, he appears to have had another shop first, almost certainly in Kings Lynn, but we can't identify where it was.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Nick.

I think I have narrowed down the saddlery shop query. Henry William Cobb married in Kings Lynn in 1890 and was living at the Model Lodging House in Wyatt Street prior to the wedding. In 1891 he was living at Garden Row, Gaywood. Circa 1901 he moved to Farrow Buidings, Gaywood. By 1911 he was at "dennys chip shop". My guess is that the picture is Farrow Buildings, Gaywood. Anyone know anything about them?

The name "Coe" caught my eye --- one of my GGt. Grandmothers was Jemima Coe, 1813-1890. Married to John Watling. They had 5 children together. Her 2nd husband was James Williamson and they had one son, Frederick.

Any connection?? I always say that there's only 2 degrees of separation, not 6!

The Coe that my grandfather worked for was George Coe. As far as I am aware he and his wife Amy had no children, but they are quite possibly related to your Coes.
