These ornamental frames were designed by Hubert-François Bourguignon (1699 – 1773)—commonly known as Gravelot—a Parisian artist then working in London. After finishing the drawing, Gravelot sent sheets to Amsterdam. There, the Dutch printmaker Jacob Houbraken (1698 – 1780) created the final image by combining Gravelot’s design with portraits. Byng was one of the young army officers who supported William III's accession; 1691, transferred to the navy; 1704, played an important part in the capture of Gibraltar,which resulted in a knighthood; August 1718, decisive victory against the Spanish off Cape Passaro, Sicily; 1721, he was raised to the peerage with the title Baron Byng of Southill; 1725, created Viscount Torrington; 1727, first lord of the Admiralty.

This portrait, after an oil now in the National Gallery of Scotland, was used as the frontispiece of Clapperton's 'Narrative of Travels and Discoveries in Northern and Central Africa in the years 1822–1823 and 1824'.
