I am intersted in Thomas Winstanley buried here.
He was a well known character of the early 1800s, auctioneer, art dealer and connoisseur.
He gave talks to the waelthy gentlemen who attended fine art auctions and was instrumental in helping build up the collection of William Roscoe, which became the collection of the Walker Art Gallery.He wrote a book which is in the British Library.
I am trying to trace a portrait of him by Thomas Illidge.
If anyone has any information about him i would be delighted to hear from you.
