Charles Fox was an English politician. He was born in Brussels and was the son of Sir Stephen Fox who named him after Charles II who was his godfather. In 1679 on his return to England from a tour of the continent he married Elizabeth, daughter and heiress of Sir William Trollope, 2nd Baronet through this marriage gained the Water Eaton estate near Cricklade. In 1682 he was given the lucrative office of paymaster general and in 1685 became the MP for Cricklade and represented this borough and also Salisbury for the rest of his life. He died in Chiswick in 1713.
Mary Beale (1633-1699) was one of the most important painters of the middle classes and aristocracy in 17th century England and one of the first professional female English painters. Mary's work was chiefly influenced by the Court Painter Peter Lely and they became great friends. Her paintings often display her talent for depicting her subjects with particular charm and sensitivity such as in her portraits of her two young sons, Bartholomew and Charles, found in Tate Britain, London and in her own self-portrait found in the National Portrait Gallery, London.
