The three Daniel brothers, Abraham, Joseph and Phineas, were the sons of Nechaniah Daniel of Bridwater, Somerset. It has come to be accepted wisdom that all three were taught the art of miniature painting by their clever mother.

Phineas, the least heard of, worked mainly in Bristol, Abraham (c.1750-1806) worked mainly in Plymouth and Joseph (c.1760-1803) worked mainly in Bath and is generally referred to when one talks of 'Daniel of Bath'. There appears to have been a keen rivalry between
the brothers, all of whom referred to themselves as 'Mr. Daniel' (orDaniell).
