Lethbridge was the son of a farmer, born in Devon he went to London where he exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1801-1829. He also worked in Canterbury in 1805 and retired in Plymouth.

His usual address was 391 the Strand so it interesting to note from this miniature that Lethbridge also lived at 96 the Strand. Interestingly, Rudolph Ackermann (1764-1834), an artist's supplier, lived at 96 the Strand between 1795-1797. Ackermann began manufacturing and selling his own paints in 1799 , and some of his early trade cards described him as a colour manufacturer. In 1797 Ackermann moved from 96 the Strand to 101 the Strand, so it is likely that Lethebridge moved into 96 when Ackermann moved out.
