Charles James Scott (active 1819-1834) was a landscape painter; he lived in Brighton and was best known for views of the town. He exhibited at the Royal Academy, London.

Charles John Smith FSA (1803-1838) was an engraver, the son of a Chelsea surgeon. Particularly well known for his work on facsimiles of ancient manuscripts, he was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1837.

Note the title of Brighton West – Hove is still a small village just to the north of the seafront developments. Its church, St Andrew’s, was not restored to use until 1836.
