Listed in 1893 as living at Launceston, Cornwall.
A publication (E book, 2012) reveals welcome information about this artist and his niece Grace PETHYBRIDGE, after much research by Philip Jackson and members of the Pethybridge family. The present detail is slim, but will be added to shortly:
'John Ley Pethybridge was born in Launceston in 1865 and died in Stratton, Cornwall in 1905. He was a gifted artist and illustrator, who exhibited at the RA and at Sussex Street. He had a solo exhibition at the Eland Gallery in Exeter in 1903. His art student days were spent in Bruges, followed by studying under John Emms in the New Forest and finally, with the Newlyn School of Painters in Cornwall.'
