What is the relationship between Fanny Norris and George Norris?

Fanny Eunice Norris was my great-grandmother on my mother Bessie Scarlet's side. I have a well-used KJV Bible that is marked on the flyleaf "George Norris from Lisba, June 25th 1911" and then in Bessie's hand "Died 4/8/34. Rebound 1938." I suspect George was Fanny's brother. I have since found out that his wife was Elizabeth Fry and that they married in 1885. Lisba is probably Elizabeth's pet name, and June 25th might be George's birthday. But I need more information on the Norris family, please.

Descendants of James and Lucy Huxtable

James Huxtable married my great-grandfather George Clist's youngest sister Lucy Clist in Taunton on 23 Aug 1899. According to the 1911 Census they had three children: Dorothy May b. 1901 in Ilfracombe, Devon; William F J b. 1905 also in Ilfracombe; and Herbert Frank b. 1909 in Mortehoe, Devon. I would love to hear from any Huxtable descendants, or anyone researching this line.

This photo shows my grandfather Sidney Clist (front left) who emigrated to New Zealand on the T S S Rotorua in 1910 along with his younger brother John (back right) and their cousin Charles Rossiter, who is sitting on the right with John's hand on his shoulder. The identities of the other two men at the back are not yet known. Any clues, please?
Where was this picture taken?

This photo of George and Mary Clist and their daughters could have been at the Ivy Cottage, Shoreditch, Taunton, but I cannot visualise such a large set of steps.
