"I agree "A Faithful Likeness" is a must for those researching the earliest photographers in towns, cities and counties in the UK. Pauline and Bernard Heathcote primarily undertook their research in the "analogue" world... having…"

Pauline Heathcote Archives Bromley House Library.

Pauline Heathcote’s archives in the care of Eric Butler at Bromley House Library have been the cornerstone of our research into Somerset Photography . The Archive and the book “A Faithful Likeness” written by Pauline and Bernard Heathcote covers early British photography from its beginnings to 1855 it is a mine of information for researchers of early  photography . I recommend them to anyone embarking on a similar county study like ours for Somerset which should be available in the next few…See More

"It seems from Larry's answer that Mr Kingston was the inventor of the carsotype process , did Kingston exhibit in 1851 ? We have very little on Hugh Owen as he was not one of our Somerset Photographers ,,, regards Allan"

"As Larry Schaaf has pointed out, this was a machine-based process/technology.  References to it go back to at least 1847.  I have been completing a study on Photography and the 1851 Great E|xhibition and have not come across Mr. Carsoe at…"

"This machine-based drawing on marble appears to have its roots in 1847 in The Magazine of Science with a Mr Kingston involved. The other citations that I found were essentially repeats of this report. Perhaps by expanding your search earlier you…"

"The 1841 Census shows a William Carsoe, 65, carpenter, boarding at a residence in Broad Street, Lambeth St Mary, London. Could it be the same person, I wonder?"

Well, he's a bit of a mystery then.  I think he may have been one Daniel Bernard, born c.1850 at Crako, Austria, who is shown in the 1881 Census at 12 Smythen Street, Exeter, and describes himself as a Picture Frame Dealer.  Not a big jump from that profession to photographer.

Allan - Have you come across an Exeter photographer named Monsieur Bernard working in Somerset?  I have a cabinet card-sized group photo taken at Quantock Lodge in Somerset, by M. Bernard of 8 Alphington St, Exeter.  He is not mentioned in CG Scott's list for Devon.
Regards,
Brett Payne
