MONGREDIEN, Jeanette

1841 - 1928

Jeanette Ann Catherine Mongrédien was born at Liverpool in 1841, daughter of Augustus Mongrédien (17 March 1807-30 March 1888), merchant, landowner and author, and his wife Jeanette Anne née Lockerby (25 February 1814-1 December 1884), who married at Crescent Chapel, Liverpool on 1 May 1840. In 1871, a 29 year old, living at Prospect Villa, High Street, Lewisham with her parents, 64 year old Augustus and 54 year old Jeanette, with siblings Adêle 28 and Augustus 26. As Miss Mongrédien, she exhibited at the Bury St Edmund's Fine Art Society in 1887 an oil, 'Tramps' which was noted as 'nicely painted with a judicious choice of colours' she also exhibited 'A Study of a Head' and 'The Abbey Ruins'. In 1891, a 49 year old, living on own means, at St Germans Road, Lewisham with her 48 year old sister Adêle Maria Augusta and a single servant. Jeanette died at 30a St Germains Road, Forest Hill, London on 21 May 1928, she was unmarried. Although the Bury St Edmund's Art Exhibition was for 'local' artists, I have not found any notes of her living in Suffolk. Her sister Adêle Maria Augusta (1842-7 May 1929) was also a watercolour artist, using mainly the human skeleton and several of the sisters anatomical works are in the Wellcome Collection.
