Commercial, India
Born Wells, Somerset.[1]
Advertising as a professional photographer in Ootacamund from c.1876, although he was certainly a practising photographer by 1870, when this occupation is listed on his marriage certificate. Residence and studio at Cranley Cottage from 1880. Business styled the ‘Ootacamund Photo Establishment’ in 1911. Manager of the Reliance Auction and Commission Agency from 1905 and proprietor of the Farlington Hotel from c.1913. He died of cerebral apoplexy and is buried at Coonor.[2] As well as topographical views and panoramas of the Nilgiris, he made portrait studies of many of the hill tribes.
 
Two woodburytypes from photographs by Penn are pasted into J.E. Howard, The Quinology of the East Indian Plantations (parts II and III, London, 1876).
