Name:  FIELD, E(benezer?)   b:1835 Cambridge  d: 1917
Address: Regent Street Cambridge (1861-71) 16 Hills Road, opposite St Paul's Church, Cambridge (1881-1888), 30 Hills Road Cambridge (1891-1917)
Working Dates: As a photographer - 1880s?
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: On Ebay August 2015 was a carte de visite advertised for sale depicting unknown man in double breasted metal buttoned uniform jacket and peaked cap (possibly 1880s) - face of carte shows "E Field photo - chemist Cambridge", fine red border and red edge. Reverse states "Photographed by E.Field 16 Hills Road, opposite St Paul's Church, Cambridge Further copies can be had" Ebenezer Field was a Cambridge chemist and druggist. In 1851 he was an apprentice druggist living with his parents in Fitzroy Street Cambridge. His father, George Field, b:1804 Paxton Hunts, was a tailor and hatter. In 1861 Ebenezer was a chemist in Regent St with a wife Betsy (Elizabeth b:1839 Cambridge) and daughter Harriett. In 1871 Ebenezer was a chemist and druggist at 37 Regent Street Cambridge, in 1881 and 1888 he was living and working as a chemist and druggist at 16 Hills Road. In 1891, 1901 and 1911 Ebenezer was at 30 Hills Road operating as a chemist and druggist. Did they change premises, or was the road re-numbered? The 1916 Kelly's Directory shows the firm at 30 Hills Road as a chemist and druggist and photographic materials dealer. Ebenezer and Elizabeth had 10 children, all born in Cambridge: Harriett b:1861, Clara b:1863, Alice b:1865, Ebenezer b 1867, Lomas b:1869, Arthur b.1871, George b:1873, William J b:1875, Edith Ann b:1877 and Ernest Harry b:1880. At different times it appears that William J, Ernest Harry, Ebenezer (Jnr) and George worked as assistants in the chemist and druggist business. None of the census returns show Ebenezer Snr or Jnr or Ernest Harry as a photographer. Of the "E.Fields", Ebenezer Snr is the most likely to have been the photographer of the 1880s. Ebenezer Field is shown in a 1913 Directory as a Cambridge Borough Councillor. Ebenezer may also have been part of the partnership of Wilson and Field.

The first two cabinet photographs below are from the collection of David Bushby. Both are on grey mounts with "WH Forscutt St Neots Hunts" on the face, reverse blank. These look of a similar age, c 1900. The more elaborately printed design on the right may be the older of the two. Below are two further cabinet photographs on grey mounts from the Michael Brown collection. There is a third variation on the printing on the face of the mount on the left, and the same studio props are used in three of the portraits and all have relatively plain backgrounds.

Name: FROMANT (or later FROMONT) , William Henry. b: 1856 Cambridge d: Sept 1941 Chester
Address: 12 Manor Street Cambridge in 1881
Working Dates: c.1881 Cambridge, then until at least 1911 in Chester.
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: William appears to have had a short photographic career in Cambridge, probably as an employee, before moving to Chester, where he was a photographer at least until 1911. In 1881 William Fromant was living with his parents at 12 Manor Street Cambridge. He was a photographer. His father, Isaac A Fromant was a master bootmaker b: 1814 West House, Essex and his mother was Martha b: 1823 Cambridge. Also present on census day were sister Emily Fromant b: 1850 Cambridge and a lodger, Henry White b: 1856 Newbury Berks, who was also a photographer. Perhaps William and Henry had the same employer. In 1861, William, 5 years old was living with his parents and siblings in Ram Yard Cambridge. By 1871 the family had moved to 12 Manor Street, and had a student lodger, which no doubt helped make ends meet. By 1891 William had married and moved away from Cambridge. He was living at 15 Tarvin Road Chester with his wife Elizabeth Nee Jones b: 1851 Chester and her sister Sarah Jones b: 1853 Chester, who was living on her own means. William's occupation was shown as a photo artist, an employee. By 1891 William was a photographer working on his own account at 34 St Martin in the Fields, Chester. His wife Elizabeth and her sister Sarah were both shown as living on their own means. In 1901 William, Elizabeth and Sarah were all at the same address and William was a photographer working on his own account. In 1911 William was still a photographer working from home on his own account at 11 Eastgate Row North, Chester. He was living there with his wife Elizabeth. According to the records at Stationers Hall, an Edward Fromont of St Martin in the Fields, Chester, created the copyright in a photograph of Kings Arms interior, situate at the Eastgate, Chester, which was registered on 28 May 1902 (COPY 1/455/530). Was Edward a relation of William Henry, or was this entry wrongly transcribed?
