Footnotes

  • The inscription to the reverse of the frame is believed to refer to Thomas Dawson (1771-1787), son of Thomas Dawson, 1st Baron Cremorne, 1st Viscount Cremorne and Baron Dartrey, MP (1725–1813) and his second wife, Philadelphia Hannah Freame (1740-1826). Thomas Dawson Sr died on 1 March 1813 without surviving issue and as such, the Viscountancy of Cremorne and the Barony of Dartrey became extinct. His great-grandfather, Richard Dawson, was a Cornet in Cromwell's Cavalry.
