In 1891 William Henry, still single, was living with his parents, employed as a Post Office Clerk. By 1901 William Henry had married Matilda Palmer (b:1865 Woodston), and they were living at Waters End Woodston, Peterborough. He was then employed as a brickmaker's clerk. However, his interest in photography commenced before this. In the records of Stationers' Hall are four submissions of photographs for copyright purposes by William as follows:

William Henry and Matilda had two children, Dorothy Evelyn (b:1896 Peterborough) and Audas Kisby Major (b:1904 Woodston). See below a photograph of a house, "West View", 6 x 4.25 ins on cream embossed card mount, the reverse has a rubber stamp "WH Major Photo' Peterborough" See also below a 1930s wedding group 6 x 4 inches, taken on what looks like a building site outside the emergency exit of some sort of hall.

Name:  MARRIOTT, Harry     b:1868 Peterborough    d:1936
Address: Cathedral Studio, Peterborough 1894, Eastmid Studio Market Place Peterborough in 1901, 2 Elmwood Villas, London Road Peterborough in 1901, 6 New Road Peterborough (his home) in 1907
Working Dates: 1894 - 1912 (Trading presumably was disrupted around 1904 due to bankruptcy, but according to the census return had resumed by 1911).

Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information:

Harry Marriott was the son of a confectioner, John George Marriott (b:1840 Fleet Lincolnshire), living with his family at 35 Brown Bridge Street Peterborough in 1881. By 1891 Harry was a printer's compositor, boarding at Heighham, Norfolk where he was living as a lodger. In the 1901 census Harry Marriott, described as a "photographic artist", lived with his family at 2 Elm Wood Villas, London Road, Peterborough. He was described as an employer- not working from his home address. Harry's family then comprised his wife, Ellen (b:1873 Wickersley, Yorkshire) and daughters Millicent M (b:1897 Peterborough), Marion (b:1898 Peterborough) and Evelyn (b:1899 Peterborough). By 1911 Harry and family were living at 6 New Road Peterborough. His family had grown by then to 8 children in total. He was described as a photographer working from his home address on his own account.

An advertisement in Cook's Peterborough and District Directory, 1894, p188, states: "The Cathedral Studio is the most central in Peterborough having large accommodation for groups; it is replete with every convenience in reception and dressing rooms. Enlargements in oil, carbon and monochrome. Platinotypes at reasonable prices. Cathedral Studio, Minster Gateway, Peterborough. H Marriott, Photographic Artist. HM devotes much attention to groups and personally attends all outdoor work. Copying in all its branches and faithful reproduction from all sizes. If you want a really good picture and likeness you must visit the Cathedral Studio."

It would appear that Harry Marriott changed his trading name from time to time and he was also the person behind the Eastmid Studio from around 1898. By 1903 Harry Marriott was in the process of being adjudged a bankrupt. A report of this in the Bucks Herald - Saturday 19 December 1903 records "Marriott, Harry, trading Eastmid's Studio, 2, Elmwood Villas, London Road, Fletton, and 5a. Market Place, Peterborough, photographer. Dec 9."

The first two cartes de visite illustrated below, from the author’s collection, mark the end and the beginning of Marriott’s photographic work. The male subject is one of Marriott’s earliest. The photograph is mounted on cream card printed on the face “H.Marriott Peterborough”, but on the reverse is printed “The Cathedral Studio Artist and Photographer miniature and portrait painter Thos F Groves, Peterborough. Negatives kept copies can always be had, portraits enlarged to any size and finished in oils, water colors or crayons” and this is overstamped in red “H.MARRIOTT” – so Marriott was using up a stock of his predecessor’s mounts, suitably modified. By contrast, the carte with the female sitter marks the end of Marriott’s work. The face of the carte is printed “H Marriott Cathedral Studio Peterborough” but is over-printed by his apparent successor “Eastmid & Co, Late [H Marriott]”. The rear of the carte has a pink tinge with lavish personalised design in dark brown, with flowers, a butterfly and an image of Peterborough Cathedral, with the text “H Marriott Photographic Artist, Cathedral Studio, Peterborough” The Carte mount is marked “Rec C.E.& C” The third carte of a baby, with the faceside and reverse showing side by side, is another early example, with the reverse a Thomas Groves mount over-stamped with the name "H.Marriott". On the face of this mount there is a variation in that it shows in addition to H.Marriott Cathedral Studio Peterborough" that there is a branch at Oundle. The fourth image is of a carte de visite of an unknown young woman holding flowers. This is on a very pale green mount with gilt edges and gilt text "H.Marriott, Cathedral Studio, Peterborough" The reverse of the mount is blank, negative no 5062. The fifth image below (author's collection) is a cabinet photograph of a couple, the woman holds some flowers. The reverse of the mount is in cream and brown as described above for the cdv. The fifth image continuing the flower theme, from the collection of Simon Shirley, is a carbon print of a girl in a white dress with a floral head-dress and wand - is this simply dressing-up, an allusion to the May Queen or possibly from a stage production of something like a Midsummer Night's Dream? The rather bored expression on the sitter's face is in contrast to her cheerful outfit. The rear of this carte is similar to those above, again with a floral theme. Note the remains of a strip of glue along the top edge of the reverse which at one time would have secured in place a tissue protective cover. The carte is c.1900.

Name: MARSH, William Henry b: 1869 Leicester d: 1941
Address: 17 Cowgate Peterborough in 1891, 7 Fitzwilliam Street Peterborough in 1901
Working Dates: c. 1890 -
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: William Henry Marsh may or may not in the fullness of time justify his place on this site as the extent of his photographic career is currently unknown.  William Henry was the son of William Marsh, b: 1834 Branwood Shropshire, dealer in china glass and fancy goods, and Henrietta E Marsh b: 1837 Richmond Surrey.  In the 1891 census William Henry was living with his parents at 17 Cowgate and he showed his occupation as “chemists assistant”. On the 1st June that year William Henry filed an application for copyright at Stationers’ Hall London for a 16 cm x 20 cm photograph he had taken of the funeral of the Archbishop of York at the grave at Peterborough Cathedral (TNA COPY 1/404/361). The funeral in question of Most Rev W.Connor Magee, Archbishop of York and former Bishop of Peterborough took place at Peterborough Cathedral on 9th May 1891. This securing of copyright must surely be an indication of practical steps taken by William Henry towards a photographic career. How far this aspiration progressed might be discovered if other examples of William Henry’s work come to light.  However, William Henry’s main career was to take a different course. His father died in 1900. In 1901, lodging at 7 Fitzwilliam Street Peterborough with his widowed mother and younger brother,  he showed his occupation as a science schoolmaster. In 1911, then a widower, living with his mother in law and daughter at 127 Wendover Rd Aylesbury, he was a school inspector in science, working for Buckinghamshire County Council.
