Includes a series of portraits of local people, from MPs to a butcher, poulterer and innkeeper's servant - normal people who would not have commissioned a professional portrait, and whom Chubb had no need to flatter. The portraits are also an important record of costume, tools, furniture and local scenery of the period. A small number of works in the collection are thought to be by his grandsons.
