Biographical data
Name: Fawcett, Joseph Addey  
Born: 30 Apr. 1840
Died: 24 Oct. 1912
 
Notes:
The name is given as 'A. Fawcett' in the 4 Jan. 1862 issue of the Illustrated London News (p.30), but a 'J.A. Fawcett' appears in the 11 June 1864 issue (p.579) and later issues. 'J.H. Fawcett' appears in the 22 Mar. 1884 issue of Land and Water (p.274). I am assuming these are the same person.
