William Joy, a marine painter, was born in Yarmouth. Most of his pictures and drawings were joint productions with John Cantiloe Joy from Chichester. About 1832 they moved to Portsmouth, where they were employed by the Government to make drawings of various types of fishing boats. Later they worked in London and Chichester. William exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1824 and 1832, the British Institute and the Society of British Artists, Suffolk Street. Works by both these artists are in Birmingham, Sheffield, Norwich and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
