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

Amateur, India
Came to India 1887 as Superintendent of the Calcutta School of Art. His death while on the journey to England was announced in an obituary in the Journal of the Photographic Society of India.
‘In the Photographic Society of India his death leaves a blank which, for many reasons it will be difficult to fill. Before coming to this country he had been accustomed, like many other artists, to avail himself of the help of photography in painting his pictures, and he was always ready to acknowledge the assistance he derived from this source. He joined the Society soon after his arrival in Calcutta, and in January 1881 [1891?] he was elected a member of the Committee, retaining his seat until his death. But it was in organising our annual exhibitions, in which he took a keen interest, and more especially in devoting himself to the arduous task of judging the exhibits, that Mr. Jobbins’ connection with the Society will be best remembered. He formed one of the board of judges at every one of the seven exhibitions that have been held … The advantage of having a trained artist, who was at the same time familiar with the technique of photography, as one of our judges, is manifest to everyone…’ [1]
