CHARLES HERRING was born in Doncaster in 1828, the second youngest son and fourth youngest child of John Frederick Herring Snr. Works signed by him are rare, however he is known to have painted or helped with many of the scenes that are signed by John Frederick Herring Snr. He seems to have had a very good relationship with his father both personally and professionally. At the age of only 28, he was struck down by Scarlet Fever and died on 1 June 1856 in Kent. His father was so distraught that he laid the front drive with seashells and never drove over it again. Charles is buried in Hildenborough churchyard in Kent.
