From 'Art in Devonshire' by George Pycroft pub. 1881
'Landscape painter in watercolour, born in Devonport in 1814. He took to art in early life, but had
no art instruction, except a few hints from an elder brother, who painted miniatures.
At the age of fourteen years, he went to Falmouth, and there became acquainted
Philp and Williams and with them used to go a-sketching. At the second exhibition of the Cornwall Polytechnic he sent in a drawing, 'Pendennis Castle, and by it gained a prize.

About the year 1845 he settled in Plymouth, and since that time has always practiced there, and with success.. In early life he painted mainly coastal scenes, from his living near the sea, but latterly has drawn inland landscapes. He was a member of The Plymouth Sketching Club, and a friend of Condy, Johns, S. Cook, W. Eastlake and others, and drew frequently with the renowned marine artist, Brierly.
He is an old member of The Institute of Painters in Watercolours, and has regularly exhibited their galleries for the last twenty years. His pictures are to be seen at Mount Edgecumbe, and at most Devonshire houses where watercolours are to be found, as he has for many years been reputed one of our leading Devonshire landscape painters.'

William Spreat
Painter, etcher and lithographer mainly of Westcountry views. He worked in Exeter and was also a publisher of prints.
