The Hon. Frederick Walpole (1822-1876), naval commander, author and Conservative MP for Norfolk from 1868 until his death. His account of a voyage he made as a lieutenant, 'Four Years in the Pacific in Her Majesty's Ship Collingwood from 1844 to 1848', is regarded as an important first hand account of Hawaii. Another book, 'The Ansayrii, and the Assassins' (1851) described the Middle East. A younger son of the Earl of Orford, Frederick's son Robert became fifth Earl in 1894. The artist, George Bridges Black, died later in the year this portrait was completed.
