A Biographical Dictionary of 19th Century Photographers in South and South-East Asia

 
Commercial, India
Married Emily Lily Bezzant in London, 6 Jul 1876 and shortly afterwards came to India to work for his brother-in-law J.E. Saché at Lucknow. Shortly afterwards moved to Naini Tal, where his eldest daughter Lily Clarice was born on 11 Jan 1879. After A. Saché took over the firm in 1881 (on the departure of J.E. Saché?), Holmes moved to Peshawar, where he set up his own studio. His second child, Reuben, was born in Peshawar in 1886; Randolph was born 1888, followed by Winifred Maud in 1890 and twins Mervyn and Gwendoline in 1895. His wife Emily died in childbirth, and William’s widowed mother came out to Peshawar to look after the family. Holmes re-married shortly afterwards.
 
Photographed Durand Mission to Afghanistan 1893. Retired 1912. The business was continued by his son Randolph Bezzant Holmes (1888-1973) until the 1940s.
