Notes Robert Monckton (1726 - 1782) was an officer of the British army and a colonial administrator in British North America. He was the first British Governor of Quebec.

Thomas Hudson (1701 - 1779) was a British portrait painter and collector of Old Master drawings. Born in Devon in 1701, he was a pupil of Richardson, whose daughter he married in 1725. He was active in the West Country and London between 1730 and 1740. His draperies were frequently painted by Joseph Van Aken (d. 1757), who also worked for Ramsay and Pickering. The young Reynolds was his apprentice 1740-43; and he also taught Wright of Derby and Mortimer. He worked in France and the Netherlands in 1748; paid a brief visit to Italy with Roubiliac in 1752; and worked in London between 1742 and the mid 1750s. He exhibited with the Society of Artists in 1761 and 1766.
