Watercolour by Mrs Hoare, 1830 - 1860

It is believed the artist to be Henrietta, wife of John William Hoare. The couple are listed on the 1881 and 1891 Censuses at Byne Lodge, Storrington. John is listed as “Gentleman” and “Living on own Means”, age 65 [in 1891], born Godstone, Surrey and Henrietta age 58 [in 1891], born Wittersham, Kent. By 1901 John has died and Henrietta is living with her brother Francis George Deedes, a C of E clergyman, their mother Henrietta Charlotte Deedes and two unmarried sisters, Caroline Maria and Emily Elizabeth Deedes, at the Vicarage, Blindley Heath, Godstone. Henrietta does not seem to have been an artist of any note and is not mentioned in any known reference works or catalogues. There was another Hoare female artist, Sarah Hoare daughter of Samuel Hoare and Sarah Gurney, who was a noted Flower Painter and a student of William Henry Hunt. However she died in 1856 and so cannot be the Mrs Hoare who was working in 1885
