Young Richard Blackmore is depicted in the height of wearable fashion. He wears a ‘stock’ rather than a cravat, a richly decorated waistcoat and the new style frock coat.

H. P. Blackmore, curator and director of Salisbury Museum in the mid–late nineteenth century, suggests this portrait probably hung in Donhead St Mary Rectory alongside the Reverend Richard Blackmore's portrait.
