Hezekiah Meakin

This photo is alegedly of Samuel Bennett, Hezekiah Meakin and Walter Meakin, although Walter and Samuel Bennett were not alive at the same time!
As the photo has been dated to the late 1870's/early 1880's, I suspect the young boy is Arthur Meakin (Hezekiah's eldest son) and the photo was taken in 1875/76.
