About this image
This is most likely John Shore, 1st Baron Teignmouth who was Governor General of India 1793 to 1797 and a politician.
The name of Shore appears to have been of considerable antiquity in Derbyshire: it appears among the list of gentry temp. Henry VI. Sir John Shore, an eminent physician at Derby, entered his pedigree and arms at the time of Dugdale's visitation; but the pedigree is not traced far up: his father was of Snitterton. Lord Teignmouth is the immediate descendant and representative of Sir John Shore. It is probable that the Shores of Sheffield were, as they claim to be, descended from the same family. The arms are the same; they must have branched off before 1608. (Taken from http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=50706#fn13).
This image is one of a collection by the famous local antiquarian, Thomas Bateman, of Middleton by Youlgreave. (1821-1861). Bateman organized his collection by inserting them into a 4 volume copy of Lysons Magna Britannia, Derbyshire, creating a fascinating and unique illustrated record of the county. The purchase of the collection for Derbyshire Libraries was made possible by the generous bequest of Miss Frances Webb of Whaley Bridge, well known local historian, who died in December 2006.
