About the Book
This is a transcript of the handwritten memoir of Alfred Jenour (1797-1868).
Alfred Jenour was the youngest child of Joshua Jenour of the [London] Daily Advertiser newspaper family, and Harriet Andrewes, daughter of Robert Andrewes and Frances Carter, the subjects of Gainsborough's painting, Mr and Mrs Andrewes. He married Ann Morgan in 1822 and had nine children. From his second marriage to Caroline Mary Hutchinson, he had one daughter. After time spent as a school master and then in the army at the end of the Napoleonic wars and in India, he became a curate and then a minister of the Church of England.
The handwritten memoir has been passed down generations and now forms part of a wider family archive held by Alfred's great great great granddaughter.
