PEMBROOKE, THOMAS (1662?–1690?), painter, was perhaps a member of a family of the name residing near Canterbury. He was a pupil of Marcellus Laroon the elder [q. v.], and painted, like him, small domestic or mythological pictures. He executed several for Charles Granville, earl of Bath. A picture by Pembrooke of ‘Hagar and Ishmael’ was engraved in mezzotint by John Smith. Pembrooke died about 1690.
