Bertha Shove maiden name Millen

She was born in Faversham Sept 1865 as a daughter of William Millen and 
she married Herbert Samuel Shove.
And their children are
Captain Herbert William Shove.
Gerald Frank Shove
Ralph Samuel Shove

According to information on the internet the Queens farm  . Herbert William Shove, who I believe was probably born at Queen Court, Ospringe, in July 1886. His father, Herbert Samuel Shove, certainly owned or rented the property at the time of his marriage the previous year. His mother was Bertha, née Millen, whose family lived at Syndale in Ospringe, according to the marriage lines.
I see the webpage for Queen Court shows an image of the building c1890 with a women and two boys posing in front of the house. Might this be Bertha, Herbert (junior) and the second son, Gerald? If so, the 1890 date for the image looks a little early. Herbert (senior) died in 1889 and is buried in Ospringe churchyard (although he is listed as SHORE on the church webpages
