The artist was the son of Sir Charles Abraham Elton (1778–1853), 6th Baronet, of Clevedon Court. Sir Charles is seen sitting at the long table, in the imaginary hammer-beamed Great Hall at Clevedon Court, inspecting the game that his gamekeepers have found in the poacher's basket. The artist has also painted himself into the scene, standing beside the fireplace. It is not known if the event depicted actually took place.
