W. R. S. Markwell was a patron of JW.


The Markwells appear to have bought a painting from JW, and in February 1868 JW sent Mrs Markwell some etchings to atone for a missed engagement [#04241].

Fanny Marks, the wife of Edward Mansfield Marks, was the executrix of W. R. S. Markwell's will. At Markwell's death in 1873, JW owed him £64.0.9 for 'goods sold and deliveries' and a writ was served by Fanny Marks in order to reclaim the money [#12147].
