Sir Francis Lennard was the son of Sir Richard Lennard (1596–1630), 13th Lord Dacre, and his first wife, Elizabeth Throckmorton (d.1622). He is depicted wearing a dark cloak lined with gold. The coat of arms in the upper left corner is for the Lennard family: 'on a fess gules three fleur-de-lis of the field'. Young and enthusiastic in politics, he became involved in the political struggle between the Parliament and the King before the beginning of the civil war.
