Albert Jenkins Humbert was born in Lambeth when it was still a part of Surrey. He is known to have studied in Italy with Charles Frederick Reeks, who had himself studied under James Pennethorne and Lewis Cubiitt. He entered into a partnership with Reeks in Hastings when they returned home, and the two designed the layout and houses for the crown estate there (1849 - c.1852), including Carlisle Parade and Robertson Street. Locally, their offices were in Linton Terrace.
