Oil painting on canvas, William Noel-Hill, 3rd Baron Berwick of Attingham, MP (1772-1842), attributed to George Sanders (1774-1846). A full-length portrait of William Hill, as a young man, standing leaning with his right arm on the base of a column. He is wearing 17th century costume, black coat, with white collar and cuffs, his left hand on his hip under his cloak. He was the son of Noel Hill, 1st Baron Berwick of Attingham and Anna Vernon. He held the office of Envoy to Naples between 1824 and 1830. He leased the Palazzo Belvedere, which had been furnished by Caroline Murat, the former Queen of Naples, in the latest French fashion. The furniture and Parisian ceramics and ormolu that Lord Berwick acquired with the Palazzo Belvedere now form a significant part of the furnishing and character of Attingham, along with the pictures which he had collected throughout his time in Italy. On 19 March 1824 his name was legally changed to William Noel-Hill by Royal Licence. He died unmarried and without legitimate issue.
