The gentleman in this portrait has been depicted within a feigned oval wearing the attire of a respectably English gent. The azure coat over a silver embroidered waistcoat, white chemise and cravat have been painted with finesse. The sitter is by tradition Timothy Mortimer (1686/1687 – 1750/1751); he was 33 or 34 years old at the time this signed portrait was painted in 1720. Timothy (buried at Healaugh, near his parents Robert and Alice Mortimer) together with this wife Frances, had three sons, Charles, Timothy, and John, and a daughter Frances. Timothy, the second son, married Mary, daughter of Robert Bewlay, esq. of York, by whom he had a daughter Mary, who in 1786 became the wife of Hewley-John Baines, esq. of Bell Hall.

Bell Hall was built by Sir John Hewley (1619 - c.1695) who was a lawyer of Gray's Inn and Whig MP. Sir John was a puritan, but at the Restoration, like his fellow townsman, Lord Fairfax, and General Monk, a Royalist and his house asserts that fact. Nonconformist in religion, he may have done this to get around the law that prevented nonconformist ministers from residing within five miles of York. Wood panelling in the family estate Bell Hall is reputed to hide cavities in the walls where they hid Presbyterian ministers.

At the time of writing we have portraits of four members of this family.
