PROPERTY OF AN AMERICAN PRIVATE COLLECTOR
Henry was born in 1750, his elder brother, George, died in 1752 and from that date on, as his father's heir, he was styled Earl of Lincoln. In the 1770s, he served as a Member of Parliament and in 1775, he married Frances Seymour-Conway, a daughter of the 1st Marquess of Hertford. He died in France in 1778 and his younger brother, Thomas, succeeded to the Dukedom.
Catherine was born in 1748 but except for this, no other information about her life has so far come to light. Sadly, she may have died young.
The Duke of Newcastle and his immediate family were important patrons of William Hoare of Bath and there is another version of the Earl of Lincoln by the artist in the Nottingham City Art Gallery. The present pair of portraits descended in the family of the sitters’ aunt, Grace, Lady Sondes, until they were sold at Phillips in 1980. We are grateful to Neil Jeffares for his help when cataloguing this lot.
