Jonathan Passingham ran a business in Cambridge, a gymnasium where young men at the university could learn fencing and practice other athletic skills. For a while he ran this with his brother George Augustus Passingham.

Their daughter, Getrude Ethel married a Japanese man according to a family history website. This seems likely to have been the Japanese student who boarded with them in 1891.
