William Chapman was Arabella’s older brother. He is picture here as a boy, a companion photo to this early portrait of Arabella. While Arabella’s portrait is in Album 1, and William’s is in Album 2, their ages and the setting — the same floor and cloth covered table — reveal that these two children sat for companion portraits.
