This portrait was purchased for the city together with the portrait of King Charles I for £6 in 1626. The city's strongest connection with King James I is through his daughter, Princess Elizabeth, who was sent to be to be educated at Coombe Abbey, the then home of Sir John Harrington. The Princess remained at Coombe for five years, although during the unrest of the Gunpowder Plot spent some time under heavy guard at residencies within the city walls.
