Richard Tattersall (1724 - 1795) was the founder of Tattersalls, the leading auctioneer of race horses in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Founded in 1766, Tattersall originally presided near Hyde Park Corner in London. Richard was an honest businessman, and was well regarded, causing his auctioneer business to flourish, going on to even procure horses for the dauphin and the king of France.

John Jones (c.1745 - 1797) was a British engraver, working in both mezzotint and stipple, and a publisher.
