The subject was the son of wine importer Dominick Lynch (1754-1844), who had his place of business in New York City. For a while the subject was deputy surveyor of New York, but later was a lawyer in Rome, New York, of which city he was a founder. One of the subject's sisters was married to "a Mr. Luquer of Brooklyn," and it was through her family that the portrait descended.
Gift of Lea Shippen Luquer, Thatcher Payne Luquer, Mrs. Thomas L. Purdy, Jr., and Evelyn P. Luquer
