Artist: Attributed to Daniel Lysons
Date: 1796 - 1811
Daniel Lysons (1762–1834) was an English antiquarian and topographer, who published amongst other works the four-volume ‘The Environs of London, being an Historical Account of the Towns, Villages and Hamlets within twelve miles of that Capital’. He often worked with his brother Samuel Lysons. He became a curate in Putney, west London from 1789 to 1800. While at Putney, Lysons began his survey of the area around London, and was encouraged by Horace Walpole, who appointed him as his chaplain. In 1800, he inherited the family estates at Hempsted, near Gloucester, from his uncle Daniel Lysons. He also contributed views and illustrations to other works and published several pamphlets on religious and historical subjects.
