John Falconer, British Library 
A Biographical Dictionary of 19th Century Photographers in South and South-East Asia

Amateur, India
Son of Arthur, Surgeon, and Anna Matilda; bapt. 22 June 1841 at Great Stanmore, Middlesex; Bengal cadet 1857.[1] ,br> 
Exhibited a highly praised series of photographs at the Bengal Photographic Society Exhibition of 1869:
Lieutenant W.L. Noverre exhibits a series of 10 exquisite views taken in the neighbourhood of Sumbulpore, all of them clean, brilliant pictures, with particularly fine cloud effects, so skilfully printed that it is impossible to distinguish whether they are from nature or printed in from other negatives. By inadvertence, and perhaps owing to the out of the way position in which these really good photographs were placed, the judges have omitted to notice them with Honorable Mention. No. 235, ‘Mangoe Grove near Sumbalpoor,’ is a particularly successful study of foliage. No. 236 is a good picture, but would have been improved had the tomb been brought a little more to the right, so as to bring it out more prominently, and break the line of trees. We observe that Lt. Noverre prepares his own paper and chemicals, and certainly the results do the highest credit to his skill, both as chemist and photographer.[2]
