A painting by G. Richmond was sold from the Wilberforce collection, Christie's, 14 July 1939 (lot 22), listed in the artist's 'Account Book' (photostat of original MS, NPG archives), p 68, under 1858, exhibited RA, 1859 (510), reproduced Richard Chenevix Trench Archbishop: Letters and Memorials
, edited Maria Trench (1888), I, frontispiece; it was presented to Samuel Wilberforce, Bishop of Oxford, in 1861, and so inscribed on the picture, as a marriage fee for marrying Richmond's eldest daughter; it was engraved by J. R. Jackson, published Colnaghi and Scott, 1863 (example in NPG), but with a different ecclesiastical medal (Trench was translated from the Deanery of Westminster to the Archbishopric of Dublin in 1863); an early proof of the engraving, before lettering (example in NPG), shows the same medal as in the painting; two related drawings by G. Richmond, both signed and dated 1859, are in the See House, and the Synod Hall, Dublin, the former reproduced T. R. F. Cooke-Trench, A Memoir of the Trench Family
