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