This portrait of Sarah Oakes is thought to have been painted at the time of her marriage to Clement Mansfield Ingleby on 3rd October 1850 at Ilford, when they were both aged 26. Sarah’s mother died when she was a small child and so she went to live with her mother’s sister Margaret and her husband, Charles Thomas Holcombe.
