William Radclyffe (1783 – 1855) was an English engraver and painter. Rather than move to London like his contemporaries Radclyffe stayed in his native Birmingham and set up as an engraver and copperplate printer. Radclyffe became well known as an engraver of landscapes, making prints after David Cox, J. M. W. Turner and Peter De Wint and illustrating numerous works of travel literature.

Frederick Mackenzie (1787-1854) was a watercolour painter and architectural draughtsman who made drawings for Ackermann's University of Oxford and Public Schools, and twenty-four of the Oxford Almanacks between 1821-1853.
