1870's Harry Jocelyn Jeffries: 12 Victorian CDV Photos, London England


Harry Jocelyn Jeffries 1855-1920 was a well known art dealer, gilder, and London picture framer. A gilder is one who "gilds" or overlays with gold, also referred to as "guilder." These 12 Victorian identified original vintage Victorian CDV carte de visite family photos were the property of Harry J. Jeffries, and he autographed and boldly signed many. We assume these photographs were removed from an early Victorian paper photo album, which often do not stand the test of time.

In early census records, Harry's occupation was a joiner or carpenter, presumably in picture frames. He then was in partnership with Harry Edward Mealand, know as H.E. Mealand in a company called "Lambert & Co." who are listed in business directories as gilders, carvers, picture frame makers and art decorators at 36 Albert Gate, as well as 7 Knightsbridge Green.

A description of each ID'd 19th century photo follows:
1. On reverse: "Aunt Annie, Annie Holgate" is handwritten in old period pencil. "Harry Jocelyn Jeffries" is boldly autographed & signed in fine dip pen script by a different hand, in early black ink. Photographer: Blake & Edgar, 32 Midland Road, Bedford, Bedfordshire, England.

3. On reverse: "Herbert Holgate Jeffries (9 months old), Reproduced in July of 1938" is handwritten in bold fountain pen script. This is an interesting clear copy of an early 1850's photograph, printed on heavy 1930's cardstock. Harry is a smiling toddler on his mother Eleanor's lap, the original would have been taken about 1856.

4. On reverse: "Kate Ellen Tingcombe, nee Jeffries, Aunt Kate, aged about 17" in old fountain pen script. Photographer: Artist, Photographer & Miniature Portrait Painter Sidney W.

Jeffries" is beautifully and boldly signed in sepia colour ink script. Photographer: Stacey, Photo, Dunmow. (known to be photographer William Stacey, also a nurseryman in the 1870's English census) Great Dunmow is a historic market town in the Uttlesford district of Essex, England. The Rodings (or Roothings) are a group of villages in Essex, England, of which White Roding is one. This is assumed to be Nell Grant, later Nell Tyrell. It is an 1870's image of a woman approximately in her forties, wearing beautiful and rich Victorian clothing.

8. On reverse: "Uncle Will (Edbrook?)" is handwritten in old period pencil. Photographer: D.H. Speakman, late Stortz, Artist & Photographer, 6 1/2 Upper Parade, Leamington. (Philip Christian Stortz's business then bought by D.H. Speakman, possibly Daniel H. Speakman) This is an 1860's image of a man holding a shiny silk top hat, standing next to an architectural column, wearing a long coat. He is about 40-45 years of age.

9. On reverse: "Father's Aunt Edward (Martha, Pat) Miss E Jefferies" is handwritten in old period pencil. Photographer: Unmarked, Unknown. Appears to be earlier, as in 1860's. This is an 1860's beautiful and intimate portrait of a handsome woman approximately in her thirties.

10. On reverse: "Charlotte Sophia Holgate (sister of mother), afterwards Mrs A Solley of White Roding, Essex" handwritten in old blue fountain pen ink and autographed or hand signed by "H.J.

Photographer: Gillman & Masslin, Victoria Photographic Studio, 9 Magdalen Street, Oxford, England. (known to be Charles Gillman and George William Masslin, in the photography business from 1875 to 1889) Oxford is in South East England, Oxfordshire and known as the home of the University of Oxford.  This is an 1870's image of a young woman, and has some tonal spotting. Her image can still be seen clearly. She appears about 30 years old, which is a guess.

12. On reverse: "Mrs. Edbrook, Aunt Harriet's Mother" is handwritten in old period pencil. Photographer: D.H. Speakman, late Stortz, Artist & Photographer, 6 1/2 Upper Parade, Leamington. (known to be owned by earlier photographer Philip Christian Stortz and then bought by D.H. Speakman, whom we believe to be Daniel Harry Speakman in England census records) This is an 1860's image of a woman who appears in her fifties, full length pose with silk dress, book in hand, slight smile, and quite matronly.
