The portrait is of Captain John Lumley, a master mariner born in 1830 at Church Lane, Selby, Yorkshire, the son of a tailor. He began his career on sailing ships such as the Goole registered brigantine ‘Ellen’. John married Mary Griffithes in March 1853 at St Saviour’s in Southwark, London and they settled in the West Riding port of Goole. He was employed by the Goole and London Line of Steam Packets, his brother-in-law Captain Thomas Woodhead being manager of this concern, and John served as first mate on their steamer SS ‘Contest’.
