The Charles family had farmed in Naunton since the early part of the 19th century and continued to do so, even after the death of Henry in 1848, until the 1870s. From that point, Henry’s son, William, changed direction and supported his family by his association with the wine, beer and ale trade. The Charles family had close links with the Arkell family who farmed close by from their Mill in Donnington, just outside Stow on the Wold, and who were eventually to create the Donnington Brewery in 1865.
Note the lack of pigmentation in the white patches on the horse’s back. This would have been caused by old injuries that, once healed, would cause the hair to turn white. The cropped tail identifies the horse as a hunter.
