The sitter was the second surviving son of Harry Maule, styled 5th Earl of Panmure (1659–1734), and his second wife, Anne (d.1729), daughter of Patrick Lindsay, who from 1669 assumed the surname and arms of Crawford of Kilbirnie, Ayrshire. He was MP for Aberdeen Burghs from 1739 to 1748 and Baron of the Exchequer from 1748 to 1776. This portrait is one of four versions of the sitter wearing the robes of a Baron of the Exchequer. This work is from Daniel Stewart’s collection passed to Daniel Stewart’s Hospital and then to the Merchant Company.
