Preparing biographies

Approved biography for Caroline Emily Nevill
Courtesy of the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York, USA)

Lady Nevill was the eldest of three sisters, daughters of William Nevill, 4th Earl of Abergavenny, known in photographic circles as “The Trio.” All three of them, Caroline, Henrietta Augusta (later Mostyn), and Isabel, took an interest in photography. When the sisters exhibited in 1854 at the Photographic Society in London, the Athenaeum’s observation was that aristocratic ladies “taking sun pictures is certainly as useful and beautiful an occupation as crochet and Berlin-work.” Caroline, however, became a pioneering member of the Photographic Exchange Society when it was founded in 1855. She contributed architectural views of Kent, all done with waxed-paper negatives, to the albums of the Photographic Exchange Club from 1855 to 1858 and to the Amateur Photographic Association after 1859. Caroline Nevill never married.
