Wilkinson John Gilbert (1805-c.1862)

Born at Wrentham, Suffolk on 14 May 1805 and baptized the following day, son of George Gilbert and his wife Betsy née Johnson.  He married at Halesworth, Suffolk in 1840, 21 year old Harriet Symonds and in 1846 Gilbert was an animal, portrait and landscape artist living at Pound Street, Halesworth with his wife, daughter Ada Jane (b.1841) and son Edwin C (b.1848).  Painter of many equestrian and sporting scenes, his pictures were decorative and he paid great attention to detail.  He appears to have only exhibited only one painting publicly, at the Portland Gallery in 1851, his pair Shooting and Hare Coursing (12" x 16½") signed and dated 1856, were auctioned at Sotheby's Chester in 1981.

By 1853 Gilbert had moved to Chediston Street but in 1861 an 'artist' boarding at the home of publican & butcher William Woods in Chediston Street, his wife Harriet, was a 40 year old nurse at the nearby Bulcamp Union House.  He probably moved to Penzance, Cornwall where he died in 1862.  In 1871 Harriet was a widow and 'midwife' living at 195 Beresford Street, Stoke Newington with two of her children Ada and Claude, both unemployed and born at Halesworth.  In 1891 Harriet was living in Putney with her unmarried daughter Ada and died in 1901.
