West Prospect of Elizabeth Castle in Jersey

Engraving by W H Toms after Captain Clement Lempriere, published by John Tinngy at The Golden Lion, Fleet Street, London,1731. One of a series of eight views of Jersey, Guernsey and Alderney. See here. See here for Lempriere: same print uncoloured.

Elizabeth Castle, off St.Helier, Jersey

24 x 36. Signed. Conjectural date circa 1735? Said to be dated 1740; See Cockett, p 62
1740 seems rather too late, but may be: this date would coincide with the greenwich panorama
also based on a print, imho

Virtually certain that Monamy has taken the view of Elizabeth Castle from the Lempriere/Toms print, 1731.
