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

 
Amateur, India
His prints were commended at the 1864 exhibition of the Bengal Photographic Society:
‘Of Major Tennent’s small pictures, No. 580 is the best. No. 577 is a good photograph, but it wants a picturesque native figure leaning against the rails. No, 579 is a good photograph, but for the smudge across the sky. No. 585 is a charming picture, and No. 586 would have been so, if it had had but one figure and a shadow to break the road; 591 also wants a figure, and the hog-back of the mountain cuts the picture awkwardly. These views of Mussoorie do credit to the photographer. We hope that he will avail himself of the various excellent subjects to be formed in Burmah, where the figures, the buildings, and the foliage, are so picturesque.’[1]
