Sir Roger and his wife Dorothy, Lady Bradshaigh, stand in front of Haigh Hall, Wigan. The Bradshaighs were a notable Wigan family, providing MPs and Mayors for the town. They also developed commercial coalmining on the Haigh estate in the sixteenth century. Lady Bradshaigh was a friend of the author Samuel Richardson, who requested a copy of the painting to hang in his London home. In return, she asked for a copy of his portrait by Joseph Highmore.
