John Rogers Herbert was married to my great great great aunt Kezia Dedman. Married St George Hanover Square, 1834 by licence. Although I have researched my Dedman/Herbert family tree, I have never found a picture of John Rogers Herbert's mansion called the Chimes at Kilburn. Built by Edward Pugin in 1869 and demolished in 1897.
Many newspaper reporters went to visit John Rogers Herbert at the Chimes in the 1880s. Seems like J R H agreed to be interviewed as long as his house was never photographed. Or any engraving picture made of it.
The Prince of Wales and other Royalty visited J R H over the years. J R H painted a portrait of Queen Victoria when she was Princess Victoria in 1833.
And there is only a few portraits of the Herbert family. I found a portrait of my gggaunt Kezia Herbert nee Dedman in the vaults of the British Museum. Drawn by one of the witnesses at their marriage, Frederick Tatham. Apparently there is no other picture of her.
J R H painted a picture of his two daughters, Agnes and Theresa in 1851. Exhibited at the Royal Academy.
John Rogers Herbert did not leave a will even though he was payed thousands of pounds for his paintings in the robing room of the House of Lords.
And I haven't been able to find out who bought the Chimes and the contents in 1897. It all remains a mystery. His son, Wilfrid Vincent Herbert, who was a curator at the R A was trying to rustle up some money from a few letters his father had left him. !900.
There are occasions when we are unsure of the identity of a sitter or artist, their life dates, occupation or have not recorded their family relationships. Sometimes we have not recorded the date of a portrait. Do you have specialist knowledge or a particular interest about any aspect of the portrait or sitter or artist that you can share with us? We would welcome any information that adds to and enhances our information and understanding about a particular portrait, sitter or artist.
