Hi, Thanks for that. I'm not sure where the Fraser connection comes in, or was it perhaps just an error on your part.

Thnks again for your reply

Hi,

Sorry, my mistake, just changed my post to read Webster, I was recently working on a Fraser family. ::) :P ;D

Cheers,
DB

I have acquired to my custody a portrait of a Fraserburgh Parish Minister (1861-87).

The rear of the canvas appears to have what looks like ďA WebsterĒ on the rear.

While I was aware that the Websterís did landscape painting, is there any record of them as portrait painters?

Hi, yes Alexander WEBSTER Snr did indeed paint portraits.  According to my father (his grandson) he was in great demand to paint portraits of the local skippers.  I myself have a small portrait he did of my aunt who was his grand daughter.

Excellent. Iíve always wanted a Webster. :-D

Itís a large portrait of Rev McLaren - probably the most powerful clergyman the town ever had.
