It's certainly a wonderful painting and I have never noticed it. Time for a revisit. There may be no link with the Worfield family, they were blacksmiths and vicars and rather eccentric and excessively careful with money.

Yes, the photographs are Nigel's.

I don't know of a link between the Worfield Barneys and Joseph - he was born in Wolverhampton in 1753, the son of Joseph Barney, a japanner, and his wife Eleanor (née Denholm).

Interesting. Fabulous pictures these Kate. Do we have Nigel to thank for them? I was looking for the Barneys of Worfield and wonder if there might be a link with this man, Joseph.
