Mr. Bampfylde del. Mrs. Gulston fecit [c.1775]
Etching, rare; platemark 400 x 225mm (15¾ x 9").
Sir Thomas Morgan, first baronet (1604-79), army officer. Morgan distinguished himself serving the parliamentarians during the English Civil War and during the interregnum as an adjutant of George Monck. He fought in France in 1657-8 (writing a colourful narrative of the campaign) and then in Scotland until 1662. Morgan was then sent to Portugal where, in the aftermath of Charles II's marriage to Catherine of Braganza, English troops were sent to bolster the Portuguese struggle against Spain. The English were treated unfavourably in Portugal, however, and Morgan was soon returned to England after formally complaining to Charles II. In 1665 Morgan was made governor of Jersey, where he died in 1679. Etched after the amateur landscape painter Coplestone Warren Bampfylde by Elizabeth Gulston (1749-79). Gulston also etched a smaller version of the same image.
