Frederick Wilton Litchfield STOCKDALE

1780—1850

He was primarily a topographer, working as assistant to the Military Secretary to the East India Company until, due to ill health, he was compelled to resign. However, despite this, he contributed prolifically to topographical works. Stockdale also exhibited in the Royal Academy. 

He produced a watercolour of St Erth Church, probably painted during his tour of Cornwall around 1820-22, for the book Excursions in Cornwall, published in 1824 by W Simpson and R Marshall of London.
