Was this photographer also the inventor of cinematography?

Here is a quote from Wikipedia regarding the photographer of this image of two English Victorian ladies: "William Friese-Greene (September 7, 1855 – May 5, 1921) (born William Edward Green) was a British portrait photographer and prolific inventor. He is principally known as a pioneer in the field of motion pictures and is credited by some as the inventor of cinematography." Link to the Wikipedia page.
I have a small collection of Friese-Greene photographs which I will be adding to this blog over the coming months. The original unframed CDV is shown below.
