Welcome to the Family

John Eyre BartholomewA family member has just come up with this small portrait of Jean’s great-great-great-great grandfather John Eyre Bartholomew (1761-1819). He was a prosperous housebuilder/painter/glazier working at one point in the Mayfair area (he looks quite artistic and might have given Mr D’Arcy a run for his money). What fun to actually have a picture from so long ago.
