This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A portrait and miniature painter and engraver, Henry Pelham was born in Boston and died in England, where he drowned in the Kenmare River in 1806. He was the son of portrait painter, Peter Pelham and a half brother of John Singleton Copley, whom he assisted with backgrounds and for whom he posed in Copley's painting, "Boy with a Squirrel".

In 1770, Henry Pelham did an engraving of the Boston Massacre, and later it appeared from angry letters of Pelham to Revere that that Paul Revere had copied this engraving and did printings in his name.

In the mid 1770s, Pelham was doing life-size portraits and then he traveled to Philadelphia to do commissions. However, he was a Loyalist and with the Copleys moved to London where he exhibited some of his paintings and then went to Ireland as an engineer and map maker and estate agent for Lord Lansdowne.
