Born in London, he was son of an engraver, who trained him. He later abandoned engraving for water-colour painting. He became known as a painter of domestic subjects and single figures.

In 1842 Jenkins was elected an associate of the New Water Colour Society, and a member in 1843. He exhibited fifty-seven drawings at their exhibitions in Pall Mall. In 1847 he left, and joined the Old Watercolour Society; he was elected an associate in 1849, and a full member in 1850. He was its secretary for ten years, from 13 February 1854, and first introduced special private views of its exhibitions for members of the press. He also contributed to exhibitions, sending 271 drawings in all. Some of his drawings were engraved.

In 1884 Jenkins resigned his membership of the society, and died unmarried on 9 March 1885, at 67 Hamilton Terrace, St John’s Wood. A history of the Old Society of Painters in Water-colours, for which Jenkins had collected materials, was completed by John Lewis Roget in 1891.

Jenkins engraved many portraits, and among other works, Susanna and the Elders, after Francesco Mola, and The Greenwich Pensioner and The Chelsea Pensioner, after Michael William Sharp. He engraved plates and drew illustrations for the annuals, such as The Keepsake and Heath's Book of Beauty, Plates from his drawings are in Charles Heath’s Illustrations to Byron and similar works
