Painted in 1591 by the Flemish painter Hieronymus Custodis this portrait depicts Lady Jane Hynde, née Verney. The picture bears a Latin inscription giving the ages of the subject as 59. Her husband, Sir Francis Hynde, had been a page to Edward VI and was responsible for adding the North wing with a long gallery of 87 feet on the first floor and a loggia in the basement of Madingley Hall. He is believed to have taken timber from Hardwick Wood and timber, lead and other materials from St Ethelreda’s church in Histon to use in his building work at the Hall.
