William Radclyffe (1783 - 1855) was a British engraver from Birmingham, who worked mainly in London. He taught numerous pupils and was father of the engravers Edward and William. He was also possibly the brother of Thomas, with whom he appears to have worked as a printer under the name 'W & T Radclyffe' between c.1817 and 1824.

Frederick Mackenzie (1787-1854) was a British 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 and 1853.
