Witness at a wedding in Brussels in June 1867, "Pierre-Jean Cornelis" was recorded as a photographer aged 40 resident in Brussels. On CVs and in trade directories, "Cornelisse" with no initial. Also on CV, 1867 ca, "E. Cornelisse", bearing this address and Rotterdam, Wagestraat. Other branches in Rotterdam [NL], Wagestraat, also named Westewagenstraat, 1866-1869; 1871-1896, and in Tilburg [NL] from 1866. After operating in Brussels, he returned to the Netherlands, where he was registered in Tilburg from 1866 to 1877, Deventer from 1877, then The Hague. It is hypothesised that the Brussels studio was operated by Jacques Emile Hergel, known as E. Cornelisse - Hergel (see that name), even though he was not registered at this address. On Cornelissen's return to Rotterdam from Buenos Aires [ARG] in January 1894 he no longer worked as a photographer. He left Rotterdam for Liège in April 1898.
