This gentleman was my maternal grandfather and was squire of Kinlet estate in Shropshire -(and heir apparent to the Earldom of Powis and his grandfather was the Earl of Darnley and his mother the Lady Constance Childe-Pemberton) he was a very accomplished and honourable gentleman/magistrate and huntsmaster - who ran his estate very well - unfortunately at the start of the war Kinlet Hall where he lived with is family was taken over and used as a blind school - the family never moved back in and it is a boarding school today - but the family still own lands/farms/houses and parts of the Wyre Forest - the hall and some other estates forest were sold in the 1970's and the family church was given to the church. Unfortunately my mother did not inherit the estate on her father’s death as it was entailed to her brother as male heir but had she been the heir, she would have followed in her father’s footsteps and continued to live and run the estate but she sadly died today and will be buried back at the family church in the next couple of weeks - she would have loved to have known of the existence on this 4 portraits of her beloved father. She loved her Kinlet and she will now return to it after 70yrs away from it.
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.
