William Goodall

William Goodall

(1794-1833)

William Goodall (c. 1794-1833), educated at Eton, Goodall became an ordained priest of the Church of England and served as absentee rector at All Saints Church, Marsham, near Aylsham in Norfolk from 1787-1844. In 1788, he married the sole heiress of Dinton Hall, Buckinghamshire, making him lord of the manor and a Justice of the Peace for Bucks. Painting was a life-long hobby. The animals he depicted include species from all over the world, including more exotic animals from Africa, Asia, Australia and the Americas. Many of the images are identified as derivative of printed sources; however, others are labelled as having been done from specimens.
