Oil painting on canvas, Sir William Blackett, 1st Bt (d.1680), possibly by L. Schuneman (fl.c.1666/7-1681?). A half-length portraot if a man, turned to the left, gazing at the spectator, his left hand held palm-upwards at his waist, in a full-bottomed wig, wearing a brown embroidered cloak, lace cravat and lace cuffs. The portrait is correctly inscribed on the back of the unlined canvas, 'The first Sir William Blackett'.
Given with the property to the National Trust in 1941 by Sir Charles Philips Trevelyan, 3rd Bt (1870-1958)
