J. Wharton exhibited a watercolour 'The Stepping Stone over the Brook' at the Society of British Artists in 1864 from Lidgate, Newmarket, Suffolk. Lidgate (or Lydgate) is a small Suffolk village 7 miles from Newmarket and 12 from Bury St Edmunds. In 1861 the population was only 443 persons and Kelly's Directories for 1864 or four years either side do not record a 'Wharton' resident.
