[Two drawings of the coffin of Elizabeth Stuart, daughter of Charles I]
Two drawings, one pen and ink with hand colouring (285 x 215mm, 11¼ x 8½") and the other pencil and watercolour (280 x 465mm, 11 x 18¼"); watermark I. Taylor. Both glued to backing sheets; the former having been divided separated horizontally into three, and the latter with vertical crease and watermarks to paper. Two drawings of the coffin of Elizabeth Stuart (1635-50), second daughter of Charles I and Henrietta Maria. One shows the coffin from above and from the side (with section of the vault in which it was placed, and its length indicated); the other is of the inscription on the top: 'Elizabeth 2d. Daughter of ye Late King Charles Deced Sept. 8th. MDCL.'. After the execution of Charles I, Elizabeth and her younger brother Henry went to live in Penshurst in Kent, but after Elizabeth's brother Charles (the future Charles II) landed in Scotland to assume the throne, parliament resolved to transport Elizabeth and Henry 'out of the limits of the Commonwealth'. They were temporarily lodged in Carisbrooke Castle on the Isle of Wight (despite Elizabeth's protestations that her health made transporting her inadvisable), where she died soon after arriving. She was buried in a small vault near the communion table in St Thomas's Church at Newport.
