Asa and Hannah Benjamin,
painted in 1795 by William Jennys

Asa's nephew, Dr Algernon Sidney Jones, married William Jennys's sister Frances in 1812.

On this occasion William also painted Asa and Hannah's son Everard. Like his father Richard, he led an itinerant life, and his usual practice was to move in with a family for a few weeks and paint as many portraits as they were prepared to buy.
