John Gendall was born in Exeter and began work as a servant to a barrister, James White, the uncle of John White Abbott. He was in London by 1811 working for Ackerman’s where he produced drawings to be engraved. He returned to Exeter in the late 1820s and moved into Mol’s Coffee House in the Cathedral Close in 1833-34. From then on he lived there with his wife, Maria, and worked as a drawing master, carriage painter, carver and gilder.
