Mr. G.H. Browne was the proprietor of the Princes Theatre, Manchester, he died in 1877 aged 51

Annie Dixon began working with water-colour by the mid-19th century, and completed portraits in Horncastle. She was instructed by Magdalene Dalton (née Ross), sister of portrait painter William Charles Ross. Despite this instruction, Dixon did not spend much time studying art, copying pictures, or pursuing further education.

In 1859, Dixon received her first Royal commission from Queen Victoria, to paint a miniature of Princess Blanche d'Orléans (1857-1932) at Claremont. A number of her portraits remain in the Royal Collection. The royal favour she received from Queen Victoria allowed Dixon to earn further commissions from nobility. Her skill at capturing likenesses meant that she had a successful career during a time when many portraitists were facing competition from the advent of photography
