John Constable first met his future wife when she was around the age of 12 and visiting her maternal grandfather Rev Durand Rhudde in East Bergholt.
The couple met again when Maria was in her early twenties and they fell deeply in love and assumed they would marry. Constable was born the same year as Jane Austin and so the rural social scene he lived in was what Jane describes in her novels as, severely class ridden.
Such a marriage would not have been approved of possibly by either family but certainly not the Bicknells and their relatives. He threatened to disinherit Maria if she married Constable.
Maria and John continued their courtship in secret for seven years. He gained a reputation for being moody, hostile and sarcastic in his professional dealings which did not help sell his pictures! To find out more about this image click Charles Bicknell.
