Churchyard was a county court lawyer, a prolific amateur painter and a collector who lived at Woodbridge in Suffolk. His friends included the poets Edward Fitzgerald and Bernard Barton, a trio Fitzgerald called 'the chief wits of Woodbridge'. Churchyard admired Constable's work and owned several examples of it. His own watercolours and oil paintings, all on a small scale, sometimes reflect this admiration but his work overall exhibits a wide stylistic range.
