Biographical / Historical
Nicolaas Henneman (1813-1898) was Henry Fox Talbot's valet, photographic assistant and collaborator.
Calvert Richard Jones (1804-1877) was a marine painter, traveller, and photographer. As a student of mathematics at the University of Oxford he befriended fellow student Christopher Rice Mansel Talbot, cousin of Henry Fox Talbot. Jones initially practiced photography using the daguerrotype method, but later collaborated with Fox Talbot and adopted his calotype process. For more details see the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography.
Lacock Abbey is a country house and former nunnery located in the village of Lacock, Wiltshire. It came into the ownership of successive generations of the Talbot family and was inherited by Henry Fox Talbot in the 19th century. Many aspects of the site feature in his photographs, including the cloister. His granddaughter, Matilda Theresa Talbot, inherited the Abbey in 1916 and donated the property to the National Trust in 1944.
