Public Statues and Sculpture Association

Thomas Eustice (fl. 1715)

He is recorded in the account book of the Charity School, Kensington High Street, London, as receiving, in the period Christmas 1714 to Christmas 1715, payment for stone figures of a boy and a girl for the school’s frontage (now St Mary Abbots primary school). The account book (the only known source for this sculptor) spells his name ‘Eustice’; the spelling, ‘Eustace’, used in the Survey of London and in Roscoe et al is incorrect.
