Thomas Heyton

Also painted by Thomas Leigh in 1634, Thomas is derssed in a similar fashion to his wife Isobel, though we can only see his shirt and the fur lined wrap over his shoulders. We can see however that the shirt is of fine linen and that the collar is integral to the shirt. The lace is small but really good quality and if you look closely you can see a dart in the band on his right hand side. This picture also hangs in Trerice, Cornwall. I hope they’re still together.
