After the signed canvas by Sir Thomas Lawrence dated 1805-1806. William Baker, MP (1743-1824) was a founder-member of the Whig Club and member of the Friends of the People. In 1804 he inherited the portraits by Kneller of members of the Kit-Cat Club and in 1813 built a room to house them at his home, Bayfordbury, in Hertfordshire, where they remained until bought for the National Portrait Gallery in 1945.
