Biography   Charles Spencer Humphreys

Charles Spencer Humphreys was born in Moorestown, where his father owned a general store.  He surfaced in Camden in May 1837, where he placed a notice in a newspaper advertising himself as a house, sign, and ornamental painter.  He shared a studio with his brother Richard Humphreys (1803-1872) from 1840 to 1844, and around that time married Caroline Fetters, with whom he had five children.

The majority of Humphreys's surviving works represent horses, the earliest known example being a lettered sign made for the Mansion House in Cape May (now the Cape May Historical Museum, Cape May Court House).  He is thought to have decorated harnesses and breast straps for a Camden harness manufacturer and also painted wagons.   ...  Displaying 750 of 2624 characters.
