There has been much speculation over the identity of the lady in the portrait: once identified as Elizabeth Fanshawe, née Seale (1754–1787), the dating of the portrait, c.1720, rules her out. It could possibly be her mother, Elizabeth Fownes, or her step mother, Anna Maria Rogers. The dating of the painting is believed to be accurate and is supported by the style of clothing worn.
