Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Trev Goodall was the first child born to Frederick Goodall and his wife Anne.   He was educated at University College School from 1859 to 1864 and was a student of the Royal Academy beginning in 1865.  While there he was awarded two medals - the silver in 1866 and the gold in 1867 and exhibited each year from 1868 to 1871.  In 1869 he won the gold medal from the Academy for The Return of Ulysses.

Founded in 1872 by the Subscribers to the Fund for establishing a Memorial to Trevelyan Goodall, a former pupil of University College School, the Trevelyan Art Scholarship is still being awarded today.
In 1869 Trev was commissioned to paint the portraits of the Arthur Sparrow family and the one of their daughter Ruth, was exhibited in that year.

On the 12th of April, 1871, Trev died accidentally from a gunshot wound while on Capri.   Before he died he expressed the wish that his painting The Return of Ulysses go to Edith Sparrow, Arthur's daughter.  Edith in turn bequeathed it to her nephew, Alan Hanbury-Sparrow who in turn donated it to the art gallery of New South Wales in Sydney.

The following is from the London Times, April 20, 1871:
"It is with great sorrow that I report the death of Mr. Trevelyan Goodall, on Tuesday night, in the island of Capri, under the most painful circumstances. After having passed some weeks in careful study at Pompeii, the deceased and his brother Howard, sons of Mr. Goodall, the Royal Academician, went to Capri, which from its beauty offers great attractions to the artist.  There they were awaiting the arrival of their father, who was in Cairo, and who is now expected in Naples on the 19th or 20th inst. A few days since the two brothers, who were affectionately attached, joined a party of friends in a visit to one of the most romantic spots of the island. 

Both the young men were fond of pistol shooting and, after a slight refreshment, Howard took out his pistol to show it to the party who were seated on the rocks, when, from some misunderstanding as to its state, it went off and the ball passed through the body of the brother, Mr. Trevelyan Goodall.  The details of the harrowing scene which followed   I omit; it is only necessary to say that the poor fellow, followed by his friends, was taken to his hotel, where the utmost kindness and sympathy were lavished upon him by his sorrowing countrymen, and the best surgical attendance that Naples could provide was sent for, but all in vain.  On Tuesday morning some hope was entertained of his recovery, but, inflammation setting in, he died late on Tuesday night.  The deceased was only 23 years of age, the surviving brother only 21, both of them young men of great promise.  This sad event has awakened great sympathy among the English now in Naples, and has filled with deep sorrow those of their countrymen who were around the deceased, among whom were two clergymen, who were unremitting in their kind attention. "

Trevelyan died at the beginning of what could have been a highly successful career as an artist and was considered one the rising young men of the day.

He is buried in the old Protestant Cemetery, Naples.
