    is the woman on the far left likely a widow? I’ve tried on occasion to look up information on widow’s/mourner’s clothing pre-19th century but most searches end up being overwhelmingly full of Victorian-era trappings. One source I remember reading was that it was common to dye one’s wardrobe black upon the death of a spouse. While I didn’t think it was likely that a widow would dye her cap black, the black shawl worn over the head would make sense.
