Coat of arms Viscount Conyngham Cunningham 18th century

Engraving of the coat of arms of Conyngham Viscount Conyngham, item 93 in an 18th-century publication. Text on this engraving, including motto, reads: 93. Conyngham Viscount Conyngham. OVER FORCE OVER (OVER FORK OVER). About the year 1050, it is said that Warnebald Cunningham saved King Malcolm Canmore (of Scotland) by covering him with hay, concealing him from his pursuer the Pretender King Macbeth. The grateful King Malcolm later bestowed on Warnebald the lands of Cunningham and the motto OVER FORK OVER. Henry Conyngham (1766 a?? 1832) was known as The Lord Conyngham between 1787 and 1789. He was an Anglo-Irish courtier and politician, and the family was connected with Rossgul and Mount Charles in County Donegal.

Destructive fire at Inverary (Inveraray) Castle, the ancestral seat of the Duke of Argyll. Valuable paintings, furniture and books were saved though some were water-damaged. The central tower was destroyed, as were a fine organ, flintlock muskets that had been used in the battle of Culloden and many precious heirlooms and objects. The Duke was of the opinion that the fire was started by lightning. Date: 1877

The Shrimper, Richard Harry Carter (1839-1911) Featured Paintings Print

The Shrimper, Richard Harry Carter (1839-1911)

Oil on canvas, English School. Richard Harry Carter was born in Truro and became one of the buyers in Cornwall of copper for the smelting firm of Vivian & Sons, Swansea. His spare time was spent sketching around Cornwall. After a number of years, he relinquished his business appointment and devoted himself entirely to his painting. Carter's early works were chiefly sea and coastal subjects, painted in watercolour, but later he expanded his genre to include figures and oil painting. Carter was also influenced by the work of Charles Napier Hemy whose style and subjects he greatly admired and whose yacht studio he frequently visited. Many of his best works were painted in Scotland and the Shetland Isles. He also visited Volendam and Dordrecht where he found new subjects to paint. Carter exhibited at the Royal Academy for eleven years and at the New Watercolour Society, now known as the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours, for eighteen years. His watercolours were often on a monumental scale, often over six feet long
