Possibly a portrait of Rev. George Montgomerie

The Reverend George Stephen Molyneaux Montgomerie (1790 - 17 January 1850) was a close friend of the Talbot family.  An artist and rector of Garboldisham, near Thetford in Norfolk, he sadly died by his own hand.  There are thirteen letters from Montgomerie to Talbot transcribed and available on The Correspondence of William Henry Fox Talbot website.
