James Andrews (1801 - 1876) was an English painter and printmaker. He is best-known for his accomplished botanical illustrations. He taught flower-painting to young ladies, and created the illustrations for the famous nature writer Sarah Bowdich Lee's Trees, Plants, and Flowers: Their beauties, uses, and influences (1854).

William Hay was a British portrait painter, miniaturist and landscapist. Between 1776 and 1797 he exhibited sporadically at the Royal Academy, sometimes from a Plymouth address, and sometimes from a Bath address.

Robert Gunter was a British publisher active in the mid-ninteenth century. He was based in Stonegate, York.
