Worldwide Search for a Portrait of Nicholas Chamberlaine

PortraitThere is no way of knowing what Nicholas Chamberlaine may have looked like as there appears to be no sketch, drawing or painting which was ever made of him. Although he came from a very wealthy background at a time when many families would have commissioned an artist to paint their likeness, nothing of him has emerged in over 300 years. The intriguing question is: Does someone out there have a picture that may be that of Bedworth's generous benefactor? The quest is on. We leave a suitable space on this website in the hope that one day it may be filled with the man whose legacy transformed the lives of so many in this small mining town.
