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

 
Amateur, India
Acting Collector, Kurnool, in 1862. Photographs of the Jogodo inscriptions in the India Office collection (serial nos. 213-215) are stated in the printed list to have been taken in 1872. Alexander Caddy, however, writing in 1895, states that these date from 1858/59: ‘General Cunningham says he has not seen Mr Minchin’s photographs of the Jogodo inscriptions. I am sorry to say thisgentleman could not find one to show me. He photographed them in 1858 or 1859, and at the earnest request of the Madras Government, he took them with him to England and left them at the India Office with Dr Rost - the negatives as well as some few prints. Since then no further knowledge of the plates exists here. But if some effort were made to trace their subsequent history, a very interesting record might be recovered. Mr Minchin did much to bring these tablets to the notice of Government, and their present conservation is no doubt due to his inception.’ Later in the report he gives a date of 1857.
