The cartoonist, Frederick Pegram was born in London in 1870, a first cousin to Charles Edward Brock (and eventually brother-in-law) and Henry Matthew Brock. He studied at the Westminster School of Art and afterwards
spent a short period in Paris. In 1886 he published some theatrical sketches in the Pall Mall Gazette and his carefully finished pen drawing made him in high demand as a cartoonist and illustrator. His work subsequently appeared in Black &
White, Cassell's, Illustrated London News, Judy, Tatler and many others. From 1894 to 1937 he worked almost exclusively for Punch, producing social cartoons with a wry sense of humour. He was also a watercolour artist and was elected RI in 1925.
In addition he produced pencil portrait drawings, etchings and undertook commercial work. He died in London in 1937.
