Preparing biographies

Approved biography for J.J. Dredge
Courtesy of the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York, USA)

Rev. J. J. Dredge contributed three waxed-paper views of Southwell Cathedral to the 1857 exhibition of the Photographic Society in London. In the inaugural exhibition of the Nottingham Photographic Society in 1859, his 10 x 12 inch calotype view, West Door, Southwell Minster, taken in 1856, was awarded first prize out of two thousand entries from around the world. The next year, a “T. Dredge,” possibly a relative, contributed a collodion view taken in Nottingamshire to the society’s exhibition. No Rev. J. J. Dredge has been identified, and of course it is easy to confuse the initials of handwritten signatures. Was this photographer perhaps the Rev. John Ingle Dredge (1818-1897), a Wesleyan minister today highly regarded by genealogists for his extensive transcriptions of Devonshire parish records?
