    Emmerson was born in County Durham and studied in Newcastle with William Bell Scott. He remained devoted to the area and lived at Ebchester, Bywell, Whickham, Morpeth and Cullercoats. His reputation grew locally and his works still form a valuable nexus in the permanent inventories of public museums such as the Laing, Newcastle, York City Art Gallery, and a number of smaller private collections. Emmerson also found fame in London, exhibiting 54 works at the Royal Academy between 1851-93.
