Catalogue Note

Roydon Hall is located in the village of East Peckham, Kent and was built by Thomas Roydon (1482-1557) during the reign of King Henry VIII. 

Works by Henry Gilder are rare. One is held in the Victoria & Albert Museum and another, entitled View from Rushmore Hill, with Mereworth beyond, Sevenoaks, Kent, was sold at Sotheby’s in July 2011 (£9,375). Gilder may have been in the employ, as a servant, of Thomas Sandby R.A., for when he exhibited at the Royal Academy, which he did between 1773 and 1778, he described his address as ‘At Mr Thomas Sandby’s, Windsor Great Park.’1
