Jesse Howarth was a highly esteemed businessman in Manchester and before he began to support Egyptology, he had collected Wedgwood China and paintings. His interest in Egypt probably first began around 1877, when he and his wife Marianne read Amelia Edwards book ‘1000 miles up the River Nile’, and it inspired them to make the same Nile journey in 1882. (As far as we know this was the only time that they travelled to Egypt.) Having seen the monuments and temples decided to provide substantial financial aid to Egyptology.
