Edward Vaughan Hyde Kenealy(1819-1880), Barrister and writer
Sitter in 7 portraits
Irish-born barrister Kenealy acted as defence counsel in the Tichborne criminal trial, aiming to show the Claimant was Roger Tichborne and not Arthur Orton. Although aided by two juniors, he largely worked alone, in contrast to the larger prosecution team. With a reputation for eccentric and erratic behaviour, Kenealy was hostile towards the judges, prosecution witnesses and the Tichborne family throughout the trial, accusing them all of being part of a larger conspiracy. Consequently, Kenealy was disbarred from the legal profession soon after the trial.
