Praed, Winthrop Mackworth

Death date



The W. M. Praed identified as No. 30 in the key to O’Neil’s painting of a game in the Garrick Club Billiards Room (G0793) was William Mackworth Praed, who at the time he became a member of the Club in May 1862 was a banker living at No 4, Bryanston Square. Probably he was the brother of Charles Tyringham Praed of the 25th Regiment, also living at No. 4, Bryanston Square, when he was elected to the Club in March 1864, having been proposed by W. M. Praed. They seem obviously related to the William Mackworth Praed (1802-1839), author, publisher and MP, who is noticed in the DNB. But his biography states that he had two daughters and makes no mention of any sons. Other persons with that surname, M. N. Praed Esq and Bulkeley C. Praed, were members of the Garrick Club at the end of the nineteenth century.
