About

18th Century Portrait of William Ockenden in an Orange Robe. Fine, sensitively rendered early/mid 18th century portrait of William Ockenden, of Temple Mills Berkshire, half length wearing a russet brown Mantle with a White Cravat. Signed and inscribed and housed in a highly decorative moulded mellow gilt Lawrence style frame, inscribed lower right and attributed to Anglo Dutch artist De Haan. This notable and handsome young gentleman is also fashion conscious. He sports the traditional high status costume of the period including a stock tied at his neck, frills at his cuffs and a shimmering russet brown silk mantle, and he holds this closed with the most sensitively rendered of hands. He also shuns a traditional and formal powdered wig to display his exuberant curls which tumble naturalistically around his shoulders This portrait exudes style, class and confidence. De Hann The artist of this painting is. most likely to be identified with 'De Hann' who was recorded by benefit as having arrived in England by 1729. There is an engraving after de Haese in the Witt Library, a Portrait of Philip Sydenham, dated 1700. William Ockenden ( died 1761) William Ockenden was residing happily in Ireland until he inherited property (in 1739 and 1741) from his maternal uncles Elias Simes of Hurley, Berks. and John Simes of Chiswick. As a result he re located to England and became a celebrated maker of copper and brass utensils at Temple Mills, across the river from Marlow. Successful in business he he soon acquired a political interest, initially winning a by-election in December 1744, progressing to join the Prince of Wales’s party, he received an appointment in his household in 1749. Put down for ‘some place’ in the Ordnance in the next reign, he was one of the 2nd Lord Egmont’s associates at the time of Frederick’s death in 1751.6 He did not stand in 1754, when he was approached by Newcastle to give his support to the administration candidates. At his death, 2 July 1761 William was a very wealthy man and the owner of several mills in Weybridge.
