1565 ca1616
an English painter and goldsmith. He worked mainly as a copyist of earlier portraits to make up sets of oil paintings for the fashionable long galleries of great houses, but signed or documented portrait miniatures on vellum and a signed title page engraving for the 1602 Bishops' Bible also survive. He is best known for his two near life-size copies from the early 1590s of the now-lost Family of Sir Thomas More (1527) by Hans Holbein the Younger at Nostell Priory and the National Portrait Gallery in London - the original was destroyed by fire in the eighteenth century.
