Frederick William Litchfield Stockdale

Our earliest painter?

Stockdale was active between 1803 and 1848, illustrating what we would now describe as travel books. The picture of St Mary’s Church¬† is dated 1812 and is the earliest painting of Benfleet traced so far. It resides in the British Library and can be accessed by clicking on the¬†web address:
