I would be grateful if any ancestry detectives might be able to assist me with further information about the Cassinello Family.
I already have details from PhotoLondon and Sussex Photographers websites, but am trying to find about the family in Essex.

Nicola Cassinello may have been born either in Italy or Hull, Yorkshire abt 1833, and was one of 6 children of Domenico (b. 1793 in Genoa, Italy) and Mary Ann Cassinello (b. 1795 in Dublin, Ireland – d. 1891 in London).

(1) Sarah Ann Cassinello   abt 1830 –?
m. Antonio Scarpenti
(2) George Cassinello   1831 in Genoa, B S – 1914 in Lewisham, London
m. Mary Ann Anderson
(3) Nicola Cassinello   1833 – 1890
(4) Catherine Cassinello   abt 1836 in Italy? -
(5) Mary Ann Cassinello   abt 1845 in Birmingham?
(6) Pope Cassinello   abt 1849 in London (He could be John Stephen Cassinello?)
m. Kate Caroline Crow (1864 Sandon, Essex -)

I understand Nicola was originally (abt 1851) a ‘Picture Frame Maker’ and I have mention of an ‘Indenture of Assignment’, Dated 1855 between  a Nicola Cassinello, Antonio Tettamanti, Giuseppe Bianchi, and Clemente Cittoni – Looking Glass Manufacturers of 13 Kirby Street, Hatton Garden.

Cannot find him in 1861 census, but have reference in Irish Church records to a baptism on 2 August 1863 of Michele Nicola Cassinello (born 29 July 1863) at St. Peter & Paul's, Cork. Parents shown as Father - Nicola Cassinello and Mother - Mary Anne Keneally.
Around 1865, he is working as a photographer in Brighton. In 1871, he is in Castle Road Cottage, St Mary In The Castle, Hastings with his children - Dominick Cassinello (born abt 1857 in London?) and James Cassinello (born abt 1858 in Woolwich?) – mother not known.

Around 1872/73 he is at 73 North Woolwich Road, Canning Town and between 1875 – 1879 at 73 Victoria Dock Road, Canning Town. Here he is shown as both a photographer and confectioner*.

*I believe he ran an ice cream business with his son James at this time from the former address.
I not sure if there is any connection with Chovelier Cassinello (born 1843 in Italy)
and his family in Manchester as they are also Ice Cream Merchants ?

In 1881 he is at Broadbank Cottages, Elizabeth Street, East Ham. He may have had a child - Sarah Charlotte Cassinello, born on 24 Aug 1889, with a Mary Jane Oliver, who is shown as a servant?
He then moves to Woolwich - 55 Artillery Place, Woolwich and 123 Greenwich Road, Woolwich, before his death in 1890 in Woolwich, London.

Any assistance or leads welcome

I am trying to find the parents of George Mackie Satchfield (b. 1842 in Mile End, London Whitechapel). I think he married Frances Elizabeth Rowe (b. 1845 in Saint Dunstan, Stepney - d. 1908 in Essex), where his father is shown as George Mackie Satchfield - deceased (Pawnbrokers Foreman).
George was first a Lithographer, and then a Photographer in Forest Gate, West Ham. He may have used the names 'George Mackie' and 'George S Mackie'. Under the latter name he may have had photographic studios at Colchester and Aberdeen? I cannot find his death and wonder if he moved to Colchester.
His son George Charles Satchfield (b. abt 1870 in Whitechapel - d. 1944 in Colchester) was also a photographer and married Esther Dalton.

Any assistance/leads welcome

Essex / Trying to find George Woodard, Photographer in Thorpe le Soken, Essex.
« on: Monday 15 April 13 16:05 BST (UK)  »
Could anybody help me in finding the family and residences of George Woodard (born abt 1865 in St Osyth, Essex).
I believe he was a Market Gardener in Thorpe Le Soken, Essex (1901), marrying Jane A ??? (born   abt 1859 in Thorpe Le Soken, Essex) around 1895. They had a daughter - Ethel Mildred Woodard
(born abt 1895 in Thorpe le Soken, Essex).
The only other info I have is that he became a photographer from c1908 until at least 1925 working from The Studio, Thorpe le Soken, Essex.

Any details welcome  :)

Can anybody assist me with finding information on Jack Maurice Flatau.
I think he was born abt 1881 in Dalston, London and married Elizabeth Wootton (b. abt 1886 in Stepney, London). A marriage (St Michael and All Angels, Hackney) for 1908 shows them in Mare Street where he is a Commerical Traveller. I also think he died 25 Oct 1955 (Cambridge Hotel, Westow Hill, Upper Norwood).

His father is shown as Harry Flatau - Boot and Shoe Manufacturer.
I have found reference to a Harry Percy Flatau (Company Director Boot Trade) who married Zillah Ernestine Tuck; a Harry Flatau (Boot and Shoe Manufacturer) in Hackney Road c. 1896; and a Messrs A & W Flatau & Co, Wholesale Boot and Shoe Manufacturers (run by Jacob, Solomon, and John Nathaniel Flatau). I not sure if he is related to any of these.

The only other positive reference I can find to Jack Maurice Flatau is that he was a photographer at 89 Beckton Road, Canning Town (c. 1911) and had a daughter - Marjorie Clara Flatau (b. abt 1909 in Stepney, London).

If anybody has information on the Flatau family, I would be grateful

Essex / Can anybody help me with Photographers in Brightlingsea, Essex
« on: Friday 01 February 13 13:48 GMT (UK)  »
I am trying to find information on a Photographic Studio at 33 Tower Street, Brightlingsea, Colchester, Essex.
I have the following occupants:

Charles Thomas Humphrey shown as a photographer in 1910 Kelly’s Trade Directory.
I think he was born 1870 in Hounslow, Middlesex (according to 1901 census, he is at 226, Uxbridge Road, Hammersmith with his father and sister). Can't find him anywhere else.

Charles Arthur Mathew shown as a photographer in 1914 Kelly’s Trade Directory.
He is mentioned as supplying photographs for 'A history of the town of Brightlingsea' by Edward Percival Dickin. Can't find him anywhere else.

Douglas Norman Went born abt 1887 in Great Bentley, Essex – died 1970 in Colchester, Essex. Shown as a photographer in 1922 Kelly’s Trade Directory. He seems to stayed there at least until 1937, when he married Barbara A Rand. I think he was also a water colour artist and his parents were Arthur Soloman Went and Alice Ruth Hammond.

Would appreciate any info on these photographers and the studio in Brightlingsea.
Regards Bobfilm  :)

I'm trying to confirm that Quinney Alfred G Bartholomew (b 1876 in Risbridge/Haverhill Suffolk - d Jan 1903 in Halstead, Essex) is the son of Henry Barrett Bartholomew (b abt 1843 in Chappel, Essex - d?) and Maria Quinney (b abt 1843 in Chappel, Essex - d?). If so his father was a Railway Loco Engine Driver living at 95 Kings Road, Halstead, Essex.
I also want to confirm that Quinney was a photographer (as shown in 1901 census) at that address and died two years later. I wonder if he might appear in any Halstead papers advertising his trade?
His mothers parents I think were Henry Quinney (b  abt 1811 in Waltham, Essex - d 1882) and Elizabeth Deal (b abt 1812 in Great Tey, Essex - d?). He was also an engine driver, as was most of Quinney's brothers.
I am not related, but am researching Essex photographers and any help would be appreciated

Family History Beginners Board / Trying to find John Henry Pepper of 'Peppers Ghost'
« on: Saturday 13 October 12 18:29 BST (UK)  »
I am trying to find information on the family of John Henry Pepper (b. 17 June 1821 in Westminster – d. 25 March 1900 in Leytonstone), probably best known for developing the projection technique known as “Pepper's Ghost”.

I have reference that his father was Charles Bailey Pepper (b. ??? – d. 1854 in Lambeth, London) and that he was a public works contractor/civil engineer. I have found a Charles Bailey Pepper who is shown as a Painter and Glazier. He is resident at 35 Dartmouth Street, Westminster (1818) and 7 Great Queen Street, Westminster (1829).
Poll Books and Electoral Registers show him at St Margaret and St John the Evangelist, Westminster with properties at 18 Lewisham Street, Westminster, 11 Dartmouth Street, Westminster and Thornton Heath Villa, Croydon Common, Surrey.
He married Anne or Ann (b. abt 1795 in Westminster - ?). She is at    1 Lansdown Villas, St Mary Lambeth, Lambeth (1851) as a House Proprietor.  Husband not shown, but with children - Jane, Martha and Adolphus and (1861   ) at 4 St Ann’s Place, Streatham, Surrey as Widow / Proprietor of Houses with children – Frederick and Martha.

It is mentioned that they had 11 children. Apart from John Henry Pepper, these may have been:
Frederick Thomas Pepper (b. abt 1827 in Westminster, Middlesex – d. 26 Dec 1903 in Hertfordshire)
m. Annie ???? (abt 1833 in Southwark, Surrey - ?)

Jane Adelaide Pepper (b. abt 1831 in Putney, Surrey – d. 29 Dec 1917 in Streatham Hill, Surrey)
m. Richard Wheeler Thomas* (1824 in Middlesex – 6 July 1881 in Clapham Park, Surrey)
* This may have been Richard Wheeler Thomas of 10 Pall Mall, who was a London chemist who specialized in the production and sale of photographic supplies.

Martha E Pepper (b. abt 1835 in Westminster – d. 1920 in Hammersmith, London)

Adolphus Pepper (b. abt 1836 in Westminster – d. ?)

John Henry Pepper
John Henry attended school at Loughborough House (Brixton), and King's College School (London). Around 1843 he was elected a Fellow of the Chemical Society. In 1845 he married Mary Ann Benwell (b. abt 1819 in Hurst, Berkshire - 4 Dec 1889 in Surrey) at Westminster St Margaret, London and is said to have had a son with her in 1856?
In 1871, he is shown as a Professor of Chemistry; resident at Mapledurham, Oxfordshire (his nephew William Welsh (b. 1855 in Reading, Berkshire) is also shown).
Between 1874 and 1879 the family toured the United States and Canada before arriving in Melbourne, Australia on 8 July 1879.
In 1891, he is shown as a widower and a Professor of Chemistry, living at Rosebery Road, Clapham. (William H Welsh, the nephew is also with him as a Chemical Assistant).
In 1897 he marries Janet Titlow in Essex. They live in Leytonstone, Essex (she is shown in his will at the time of his death). John was buried on 29 Mar 1900 at West Norwood Cemetery.

I don't know why he ended up in Leytonstone or was buried in Norwood?

While there is lots of info about him in relation to ‘Peppers Ghost’, I cannot find family details. If anybody has any details or links, I would appreciate any assistance.
