Cook, Samuel (1806–1859) N.W.S.
Born in Camelford, Cornwall in 1806, he received a rudimentary education, and at the age of nine was apprenticed to a local firm of woollen manufacturers. At the same time he was painting sign boards and the like.
Once out of his articles he moved to Plymouth and eventually set up as a house painter. In his spare time he made sketches of the coast and quays. He was an unsuccessful candidate for the New Watercolour Society (later known as the R.I.) in 1843, but was elected Associate and Member in 1849 and 1854 repectively. In the former year he was in Ireland. He died in Plymouth in 1859.
Examples of his work are held by the British Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum, Exeter Museum and Shipley Art Gallery, Gateshead.
