Bomanjee Jamsetjee (1756-1821)
The sitter was a great Indian shipbuilder and was the master-builder at Bombay Dockyard from 1792-1821, a post he shared with his cousin Framji Manackjee until the latter's death in 1804. Although their work had been praised by successive British commanders-in-chief in India, from Admiral Sir Edward Hughes in 1781 onwards, the seal was set on Jamsetjee Bomanjee's work when he laid down the 'Minden'. This was the first ship of the line to be built for the Royal Navy out of England.
