KENNERELL – see also BEALES AND KENNERELL

Name: KENNERELL, John      b: 1844 Gosberton, Lincs      d:1917
Address: 8 and 9 High Street Wisbech (1883), 7 York Row Wisbech - Borough Studio (1896 - 1900)
Working Dates: 1881-1900
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: In 1871 John Kennerell was living with his brother James and his brother's family at Currie Road Hertford. He was employed as a decorator and painter. Some time later John became a photographer. The 1881 census lists John Kennerell aged 37, as a photographer living as a boarder at 46 Agenoria Street, Wisbech with three women, Ann Steel, the head of the household, (b:1824 Handley Staffs), her 82 year old mother Mary Jones (b:1799 Handley Staffs) and her 19 year old daughter, Frances E Steel. Ann Steel or Anne Steele was the widow of Wisbech photographer, Enoch Steele, who had operated at 8 High Street Wisbech, and died in 1877. It is possible that John Kennerell had joined or taken over Steele's business as he was living with his widow and daughter 4 years after Enoch's death. At the time of the 1881 census 8 and 9 High Street Wisbech was listed as unoccupied. The 1883 Kellys Directory lists "Kennerell John (late Beales & Kennerell), portrait & landscape photographer & picture frame maker, 8 & 9 High Street" In 1891 John, described as "artist - photographer" was a boarder at 2 Nene Quay Wisbech, a boarding house kept by a Lydia Taylor. In 1901 John, still a boarder, had moved with his former landlady, Anne Steele, to her daughter's and son-in law's house at 9 Market Street Wisbech and John was described as a photographer and picture frame maker. In 1911 John was a retired photographer, still a boarder with his former landlady, but at 3 York Road Wisbech.

See below, carte de visite in author’s collection (vignette type of male looking right) on face of mount “J.Kennerell Wisbech”, on rear “J Kennerell Photographer and Picture Frame Maker, 8 High Street, Wisbech” The mount is by Marion, coded “ depose .. . . _  For more on Marion mounts see http://www.cartes.freeuk.com/dated/marion.htm From the style of the photograph and detail on the mount this carte appears to date from the 1890s, pre-dating the change of studio address in 1896. Next is a cabinet photograph of what appears to be a group of four sisters. The mount is dark grey with white impressed text "Kenerell Borough Studio York Row Wisbech.". The reverse is blank apart from a manuscript negative No 1335, believed to be late 1880s. Below this is a cabinet portrait of an unknown couple, possibly an engagement photograph as the lady has a small ring on her ring finger. The reverse has the Borough Studio address with the Wisbech cross keys emblem, negative no 4473, probably from the late 1890s. Lilian Ream was a pupil of John Kennerell, later an assistant, then manageress of his Borough Studio. Later Lilian Ream and Mr J.L Brown ran the business there as Brown and Ream. Lilian Ream acquired Borough Studio in 1921 when JL Brown retired. One of John Kennerell's notable achievements was obtaining a picture of the World Championship skating match between Fish James Smart of Welney and George See on the River Nene at Wisbech.
