Jenkins in the mid 1900s

John Hogan Jenkins (1852 – 1936) was a Welsh trade unionist. A shipwright by trade, he was born in Pembroke Dock but spent most of his life in Cardiff.[1] He was firstly a Liberal-Labour and then Labour Party[2][3] politician.

Jenkin was President of the Trades Union Congress in 1895.[1][4]

He was elected at the 1906 general election as the Member of Parliament (MP) for Chatham in Kent,[5] but was defeated at the January 1910 election by the Conservative Party candidate. He did not stand for Parliament again.[5]
