Thomas Churchyard was a country lawyer in Woodbridge but his lifelong enthusiasm was for painting and he produced hundreds of watercolours and oils. He formed a friendship with the poets Bernard Barton and Edward Fitzgerald and the group became known as the "wits of Woodbridge". Throughout his life he was an avid collector and his estate included works by Gainsborough, Constable and Crome. His work is held in the Tate Gallery, The British Museum, the V & A and the Ashmolean.
