An antique family legacy has been handed down and the name happens to be Constable

Several generations on, one far flung family arm of one of Great Britain's most highly regarded artists, John Constable, (1776-1837) perhaps the greatest English landscape painter of the 19th century, is now settled in the west of the Dominion of Canada.

They own a proud family legacy which has been passed on from generation to generation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Handed down in the family is this beautiful hand coloured map of England and Wales which was prepared by one;  'C. Constable'

at R.F. Cowles Academy, in Swaffham, Norfolk, England in 1842.

England and Wales

 

 

 

Charles Golding CONSTABLE, British Artist, Mapmaker and Cartographer:

 

  C. G. Constable, born in 1821, was later to become Captain Charles Golding Constable of Her Majesties Indian Navy. He was the famous mapmaker and cartographer, sometime artist and the second son of the famous British landscape artist and painter, John Constable.

 

 It was C. G. Constable who between 1835 and 1860 surveyed large areas of the Persian Gulf and he was regarded as one of the foremost hydrographic surveyors of the period and wrote many books and papers on his specialist subject, mapmaking. 

In 1861 he became a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and died in March 1879, aged 58 years having produced many maps in his life.

 

NOTE: Mr. Reuben Frederick COWLES was an academic living in the market town of Swaffham, Norfolk, England at that time and he ran a boarding school.

(Source "Whites 1845 Norfolk", David & Charles 1969 -  reprint of "History, Gazetteer and Directory of Norfolk", William White 1845.

 

 

 

Redfords Art Sales (1863, pp. 175-178) detailed an instance of a letter of the son of John Constable, C.G. Constable complaining of the many fakes that were being produced at this time of  his fathers works.

Tooley's Dictionary of Mapmakers: The C.  Constable listed was an Admiralty surveyor responsible for charts of the Persian Gulf surveyed between

1857-1860.
