Francis (1754–1826), 1st Marquess of Hastings, was Acting Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of England, one of two governing bodies of Freemasonry in England in the eighteenth and early nineteenth century, from 1790 to 1813. In 1799 he spoke in parliament in favour of Freemasonry, to prevent it being banned by the Unlawful Societies Act. In this portrait he is wearing the uniform of a general in the British Army.
