H.C. Austen was my grandfather x 5. I have collected circa 30 engravings to date of his work and transcribed a family will depicting a large collection of engravings that he had from his contemporaries. His surname is misspelt as Austin and should be Austen. It was frequently misspelt on the engravings themselves.
