There are three portraits of the Buckle family at Felbrigg: as well as this, there are portraits of Thrower’s wife, Ann; his brother, John; and his daughter, Ann. These portraits are at the property because Ann’s son, the Rev. Cremer Cremer, married Marianna Wyndham of Felbrigg. Thrower lived in the Norfolk village of Cringleford.
A oil painting on canvas of Thrower Buckle, by Charles Catton the elder, RA (Norwich 1728 – London 1798). A half length portrait of a seated man in a white wig.
