He was active as a portrait painter in York circa 1820-1821. Two similar portraits of another British official and his wife, Executive Council clerk John Small and Elizabeth, have survived and are now in the collections of the Royal Ontario Museum.|

"R M N" may refer to the painter Robert McNaughton. Portraits of John Small and Elizabeth (nee Goldsmith?) Small attributed to him share a number of similarities with the portraits of Sir William and Lady Hannah Campbell, and were executed at approximately the same time (1820).

From an early date portraits were common items to find on the walls of houses in Upper Canada. Settlers often brought with them miniatures, silhouettes and oil or watercolour portraits when they emigrated to Canada. Although there are practically no records of door-to-door travelling portrait painters in early Upper Canada, there is record of them in the United States, and it is likely that they sometimes travelled north.

English settlers in Upper Canada brought with them a demand for portraits, in particular the wealthier settlers who later became members of the Family Compact (Sir William Campbell was part of the outer circle of this group). Many portraits of the members of this group were painted by the artist George Theodore Berthon, who was a pupil of Jacques-Louis David. Most portraits at this time, however, were produced by anonymous amateur painters.
