Notes

A label of Aitken & Dodson, 26 South Castle Street, Edinburgh is on the stretcher. Another label on the stretcher reads 'portrait of Oliver Cromwell given by him to Judge Chaloner, one of the Regicide judges whose descendent, Miss Ellen Chaloner, left it to John Younge Esq, my gt grandfather [inserted between lines] in old dark original frame'. W 6078 is pencilled on the frame and stretcher.


This is possibly a contemporary copy of an (unknwn) portrait.
