Commentaires : Henry Peter Brougham, 1st Baron Brougham and Vaux (1778"1868), ("Brougham" is pronounced Broom), a British statesman who became Lord Chancellor of the United Kingdom in the 1830s. Previous to this, he had served as an attorney for the spurned Queen Caroline of Brunswick, when George IV tried to divorce her and deny her rights as Queen in the early 1820s. Lord Brougham died in May 1868 at Cannes, on the French Riviera, and is buried there as well. At the time of his death, a print appeared in the Illustrated London News from which Anthony Flower did this painting. Anthony Flower, who is taking his place as one of Canada's preeminent pre-confederation painters, was born to Cornelius Flower (1760-1828) and Margaret Nicholson Flower (no date) on 4 March 1792 in the Ratcliff-Wapping area of Middlesex County, a part of London, England near the River Thames. Anthony Flower had two sisters, Mary and Martha, and several half-siblings who were born to Eliza Ann Ball Flower, Cornelius Flower's second wife whom he married after the death of his wife Margaret. In 1808, Cornelius Flower moved his family to Little Heath Great Farm in Hertfordshire, England, near the village of Berkhamsted. Anthony Flower lived with his family at Little Heath Great Farm until immigrating to St. John, New Brunswick, Canada in 1817 aboard his father's ship, the Trent. By 1818, Anthony Flower had bought from John Clark a 200 acre plot of land on the shores of the Washademoak Lake in MacDonald's Corner, New Brunswick. On this land, Flower built his frame house, which is now the Anthony Flower House Museum in Cambridge-Narrows, New Brunswick, and developed his homestead. He married Mary Green Flower (1794-1867) on 4 July 1820, and together they raised four children: Cornelius (1822-1890), Margaret (1825-1894), James (1829-1918), and Mary (1835-1922). Anthony Flower lived, farmed, and painted at MacDonald's Corner until his death on 9 December 1875, and he is buried with his wife Mary in the MacDonald's Corner Baptist Church cemetery. Their house and land remained in the possession of their descendants until 2002, at which time the house was acquired by the Queens County Historical Society and the contents, including many paintings, were put up for auction. There is no evidence to suggest that Anthony Flower ever sold a painting, and most Flower paintings have been found in the possession of Anthony Flower's descendants or in the possession of the descendants of Flower's friends and relatives.
