of Ware - circa 1890


Henry Thomas Martinson (1854-1927) was born in Islington, the son of Thomas & Eleanor Elizabeth Martinson. He may have only been a professional photographer for a short time. I have not been able to locate him in the 1881 census, when he may have started as a photographer, but in 1890 he is listed (for the only time in Hertfordshire directories) as a photographer at Amwell End, Ware. In the 1891 census is listed as a photographer, living with his parents at the Corn Exchange, Ware. The following year he married Mary Jane Perkins, and his occupation in 1901 was as a draper in Battersea, and in 1911 as a house agent in Wimbledon.
