Re: Robert Samuel Ennis Gallon (British artist, 1808-1868) etc. being part of his later bloodline, it would be nice to know more background about him and Robert Gallon (his famous artist son), if you / contacts have any further information, to add to what is already popular public records on the internet etc. There is also some brief internet record of Robert Gallon (1845-1925) sister being married at a time to another famous british artist Henry John Yeend King (HJYK), including mention of his 'Milking Time' painting held in the Tate Gallery. Cant get to visit museum easily so it would also be be helpful to know more of them all through written / phone contact including free web downloads , and family biographical museum recrds plus links / ties, for instance to find the first name of Henry JY King wife, who he married from our Gallon side of family. The internet also makes reference to a popular artwork of Robert Gallon showing a garden scene at HJYK place (painted just at end of 1900 century). Would appreciate your email reply. Regards from Mr Gallon and family. ( 26 7 2015 ).
