Benjamin Thomas Pouncy was a pupil of printmaker William Woollett. From 1772 to 1789 he exhibited mainly watercolour views of Kent at the Society of Artists and the Royal Academy. He was also a printmaker, producing plates for antiquarian and travel books, and making etchings and engravings after his own designs. He worked collaboratively with Woolett on some prints. In the 1770s, he produced illustrations for the librarian at Lambeth Palace, historian Andrew Coltee. He later made copies of medieval manuscripts for archivist and collector Thomas Astle’s ‘The Origin and Progress of Writing’ (1784). Engraver and watercolourist Joseph Powell lodged with Pouncy in Lambeth for a time and may have been his pupil. He died in Lambeth in 1799.
