George Henry Jr JENKINS

Though no biographical detail is currently known for this artist, he was the second child of painter George Henry JENKINS of Plympton. His baptism, and that of six other siblings, was undertaken at Plympton St Mary's parish church.  His signature is considered to be very similar to that of his father, and his work distinguished by the use of more vivid colours, though the topographical subjects were similar.

The publisher Raphael Tuck took up some of his paintings as postcards in the Picturesque Devon series.

A correspondent (2017) reported that he has two paintings by this artist, one of which is entitled 'Kynance Cove'.
