Pollock, Carlile

American, 1749 - 1806

Carlile Pollock was the son of John Pollock, of Newry, County Down, Northern Ireland. Carlile emigrated to America with his brothers, George (1762-1820) and Hugh, and the three became merchants in New York. George and Carlile married into the Yates family, prominent citizens in early America. Their sister, Anne Elizabeth (Betsy) Pollock (b. 1758), became the second wife of Dr. William Hartigan (c. 1756-1812), surgeon and professor of anatomy at Trinity College, Dublin. A portrait believed to be of Dr. Hartigan (1942.8.16) was painted by Gilbert Stuart; a portrait of Mrs. Hartigan now attributed to Carl von Breda, an artist who worked for a time in Joshua Reynold's studio, is also in the NGA (1942.8.15).
