This painting has a label at the back which reads ‘Marianne and Fanny, daughters of Robert Ingleby’ and cousins of Clement M. Ingleby. The lineage of the Ingleby family shows that a Rupert Ingleby (son of William Ingleby) had two daughters, Marianne and Fanny, both born in the 1830s. However, the costume worn by the two subjects is much earlier, probably mid-eighteenth century and so the identity of these two young women remains a mystery.
