John Falconer, British Library 
A Biographical Dictionary of 19th Century Photographers in South and South-East Asia

 
Amateur, India
‘The only person at all able or likely to act as an amateur photographer in taking photographic sketches of these buildings is Mr J.F. Blumhardt, the Assistant Commissioner of Godda, now on settlement duty in the Damin-i-koh. On finishing this settlement duty he might be deputed to this work.’[1]
 
Presumably the same as J.F. Blumhardt (d. 10 Dec 1922), who was Professor of Hindustani at University College, London (sparse details in Who was who, vol. II). If so, possibly the brother of E.K. Blumhardt, a Cambridge alumnus, and if so, then the son of Charles Henry Blumhardt, clerk of Krishnaghur, Bengal.
