Footnotes

  • Charles was the first of five children born to Charles Nevinson (1742-1814) and Charlotte Bonney (1772-1840). His sisters, Charlotte and Jane, are portrayed in lots 65 and 67. A Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians from 1806, Nevinson held the position of Junior Commissioner between 1814-1815 and was appointed Senior Commissioner by 1820.

    Charles married his first wife, Mary Brinley (d.1817) in 1801. They had a son, Charles but he died when only four years of age. He was christened on 12 January 1805 at St. Mary's Church, Marylebone, London (present day St Marylebone Parish Church).

    Charles married his second wife, Julia Elizabeth Barrett-Lennard (1804-1874) in 1823 and adopted her illegitimate son, Sir Thomas Barrett-Lennard, 1st Bt (1762-1857). Sir Barrett-Lennard's biological father was Thomas Barrett-Lennard, 17th Lord Dacre (1717-1786). The couple had a child of their own, Charles Lennard Edward Nevinson (1823-1826) and they christened him at St Mary's Church in Marylebone but he too died in infancy.
