.......Poor Chatelaine, the engraver, lived in lodgings in this street. He died in 1771, so miserably poor that Mr. Panton Betew, a silversmith (a great collector of Hogarth's drawings and engravings, who also lived in Compton Street), Vivares, the engraver, for whom Chatelaine had formerly worked as an etcher of landscapes, and several other old friends, buried him in the poor-ground of St. James's Workhouse, Poland Street, Soho.
