St Trinian's

Date made: n.d.

Description: "This church is situated near the middle of the Island, in the way between Peel and Douglas. It is reported to be a votive edifice, built to fulfil a vow made by a person in imminent danger of shipwreck. Who or what he was, and when the vow was made, or the church built, tradition does not say." (Francis Grose, Antiquities of England and Wales, 1773-1777, M 02523)

The painting is from a series of works by Mrs Lucy Emma Lynam, born 1834. It is thought that Lucy Emma Lynam painted the works while staying with her daughter and son-in-law on the Isle of Man. Her daughter, also called Lucy Emma, married a Manxman Sidney Alfred Pizey Kermode, who was the Reverend of Onchan (1862-1925).
