Biographical History

Patron of Gainsborough.

From the description of Autograph letter signed : Bath, to an unidentified recipient, [1784?] Jan. 24. (Unknown). WorldCat record id: 270571951 From the description of Autograph letter signed : Bath, to Mr. Dodsley, 1777 Nov. 20. (Unknown). WorldCat record id: 270571948

Philip Thicknesse (1719-1792), soldier and author, traveled to Georgia with Oglethorpe, served in Jamaica and the Mediterranean, and purchased in 1753 the lieutenant-governship of Landguard Fort, Suffolk. A patron of Thomas Gainsborough (1727-1788) and the author of numerous pamphlets, guides, letters, and other tracts, Thicknesse spent much time traveling and lived in Monmouthshire and at Bath. He married three times: first, in 1742, Maria Lanove (whose large family fortune he unsuccessfully claimed, in a notorious lawsuit, after her death in 1749); second, in 1749, Elizabeth Touchet, eldest daughter of the Earl of Castlehaven; and third, in 1762, Ann Ford, the authoress and musician.

From the description of Letters of Philip Thicknesse, ca. 1770-ca. 1785. (Huntington Library, Art Collections & Botanical Gardens). WorldCat record id: 122288748
