Portrait of William Marsh (1755-1846)

Banker of Knightsbridge in the County of Middlesex and York Gate, Regents Park, England

Painted by the artist Francis Lemuel Abbott (1760/61-1802) probably around 1780.

I am not aware of the present whereabouts of this portrait.  I understand that it was auctioned by Sothebys on 9 April 1975, Lot 79, and was bought by a Mrs Ward for £220.

If you know where it is I would be very pleased to hear from you.  Please contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

William's wife Amelia but it is not know what this portrait looks like.

Lemuel Francis Abbott also painted James Heath who engraved a number of his portraits including the very well known portrait of Horatio Nelson.
