Born in Leicestershire in 1760 or 1761, the son of clergyman of the same name, Lemuel became a pupil of Francis Hayman in 1775 age 14 and lived in London in 1775. After his teachers death in1776 he returned to his parents where he continued to develop his artistic talents, it has also been suggested that  he may also have studied with Joseph Wright of Derby. In 1780, Abbott married Anna Maria, and returned to  London, . where he exhibited at the Royal Academy. Abbott painted portraits of many figures of the day including leading seamen such as Admiral Nelson, Admiral Sir Robert Calder, Rear-Admiral Sir Thomas Pasley and Captain William Locker, astronomer Sir William Herschel, poet William Cowper, artists Francesco Bartolozzi and Joseph Nollekens, entrepreneur Matthew Boulton and industrialist John Wilkinson amongst others. 

ANDREW MOFFAT (died 1780)
Moffat was a ship insurer and member of the illustrious East India Company. The company relied on dense networks of kinship, patronage and sociability to maintain its monopolistic control over Asian trade.  Moffat lived at Cranbrook House in Ilford, opposite Valentines and next to Highlands, and although he had not been to sea, his two brothers were retired captains, closely involved as PMO or Directors of EIC.

M.GRIEVE
Known as ‘the master of roses’ due to his skill in woodcarving, Grieve came from a long line of woodcarvers. The Grieve Company is known to have worked with the illustrious art dealer Joseph Duveen and through that association made many frames, among them the frame for The Blue Boy by Thomas Gainsborough, which belonged to Henry Huntington.
