Francis Chesham (1749 - 1806) was a British engraver best known for his topographical views. In 1777, whilst based in Broad Street, Golden Square, he first exhibited at the Royal Incorporated Society of Artists in Piccadilly. In 1780 he exhibited with the Society of Artists at Spring Gardens. Between 1779 and 1780 he engraved several topographical views after Paul Sandby for Rooker's Copper Plate Magazine. In 1788 the Boydells published two engravings by Chesham after G. Robertson, A View of the Iron Bridge in Coalbrookdale, Shropshire and A View of the Mouth of a Coal Pit near Broseley in Shropshire.

Charles Catton I (1728 - 1798) was a British painter of landscapes, animals, portraits and history. Born in Norwich in 1728, and studying at St. Martin's Lane Academy, he was one of the founder members of the Royal Academy in 1768. Trained as a coach painter, Catton was employed by George III. In 1784 he was master of the Worshipful Company of Painter-Stainers Company.
