Sir Thomas Armstrong

 In his book "Trilby", George du Maurier uses Thomas Armstrong, thinly disguised as the character Taffy Lynn: "a huge Yorkshireman, (a bullock, a bear,) with Dundreary whiskers; in an out-at-elbow shooting jacket and his old Harrow cricket cap, enjoying happy times of impecuniosity and strength and freedom, with all Paris for a playground and its dear old unregenerate Latin Quarter for a workshop and a home."  This and many other references to Thomas (later Sir Thomas) can be found in
Vision and Accident: the Story of the Victoria & Albert Museum (author: Burton).
See especially pp. 127-128, 130-131,134-135, 146-147 plus photos on pp 131 & 144.
