In 1988, Ilaria Bagnamini published a very useful check-list of members of the St. Martin’s Lane Academy in Volume 54 of the Walpole Society. Bagnamini’s list is compiled from Vertue’s notebooks, the subscribers to first edition of Kirby’s Method of Perspective, and Wine and Walnuts (1823). Kirby’s second edition, published in 1755, contains many more subscribers, including more members of the Academy. Here is a supplemental list of names indicated in the second edition that did not make it onto Bagnamini’s list.
Mr. Allen, Painter
Mr. Thomas Carter, Statuary
Mr. Francis Coates, Painter
Mr. John Eccardt, Painter
Mr. Thomas Gainsborough, Painter (Bagnamini does include Gainsborough, but says he is on `no list’)
Mr. Thomas Major, 2 Books
Mr. Benjamin Radcliffe (this is presumably the R. Ratcliffe from 1823)
Mr. Peter Roberts, Chaser
Mr. Benjamin Wilson, Painter and F.R.S. 4 Books
