Catalogue Note

The arms are those of Williams-Wynn impaling Shakerley for Frances, daughter of George Shakerley of Gwersylit, Denbigh, second wife and widow of Sir Watkin Williams-Wynn, 3rd Bt (d. 1749), whom he married on 16 July 1741. She died on 19 April 1803.

'On Tuesday last died, at her house in Wimpole-street, Lady FRANCES WILLIAMS WYNN, in the 86th year of her age. She was relict of Sir WATKIN WILLIAMS WYNN, so famed for his hospitality and munificence throughout Wales sixty years ago; and preserved, by her conciliating manners, the high regard of his numerous friends, during her son's long minority; her memory was clear, and strength of mind continued to the last.' (The Morning Post, London, Thursday, 7 April 1803, p. 3c)
