Nothing is known of this artist beyond the signed and dated marine painting in the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., which suggests that he was active in Hull in 1863. He may have been related to James H. Wheldon (1830-1895), a marine painter who lived in Hull from 1863 to 1876, works by whom are preserved in the Town Docks Museum, Hull; but he was evidently a primitive artist compared to this accomplished executant.
