Dominic Serres the Elder RA (1719 - 1793)

RA Collection: People and Organisations

Farington’s diary entry for 4 November 1793 records the death of Dominic Serres and noted that he ‘was about seventy-three or four years of age’. This would place the date of birth in 1720 or 1719. More significantly, family records among Serres’s descendants consistently give October 1719 as the date. Taken together, these indicators suggest that it would be reasonable to accept late 1719 as a more accurate date of birth for Dominic than the previously generally stated year of 1722.
