Photo reproduced with the kind permission of Brett Payne.

The above "Carte de Visite" is described by Brett Payne on his excellent website "Derbyshire Photographer Profiles" as ""Mr. H. Bright" inscribed faintly in pencil on reverse.  It is possible that this is a photo of Horatio Bright (c1827-1905) a Sheffield steel manufacturer who was staying at the Palace Hotel, Fairfield, Derbyshire in April 1881.

Horatio's son SAM is also listed in the 1881 Census.  He was married then and had two young daughters MARY (2) and ALICE (9 months). It seems as though there Christian names were from his mother. His wife JOSEPHINE originated from London and at 22 years of age, was five years younger than Sam. The family lived at 10 Newbould Lane in the Broomhill district of Sheffield. (FHLM 1342119 PRO ref RG11/4633/146Page37). Sam's occupation is given as Silver Plate Manufacturer (White metal) 

There is also the fact that John was now a merchant manager clerk whereas in 1861 he was a Spring Knife Cutler who had his own apprentice.

CHARLES and EMMA were married in the December quarter of 1852 (PRO Ref Sheffield Vol 9C Page 412) - the FreeBMD site gives EMMA's maiden name as EMMA CASTELLO STAINFORTH which I believe may be a transcription error

The Costello' s could not be found but given their age in 1861, they had in all probability died in the intervening twenty years

I also could not find any trace of the RAMSDEN family in 1881
