Trying to find Sisson

Trying to descendants of THOMAS SISSON b1868 ilkeston, Derbyshire and lived at 15 Church Street, Ilkeston in 1901 Son of Thomas Sisson and Louisa He was the Great Grandson of Thomas 'Giant' Sisson. I do have his children from the 1901 census but he was in possession at the time of a oil painting of GIANT Sisson and lent this to a book for printing. It was commissioned by the Duke of Rutland and a copy made by Simpson. I am after chasing his more recent descendants to see if the painting is still in the family so I may get a photograph of this. Thanks Michael
