Almost certainly originally at Cassiobury Park, Hertfordshire, the seat of the sitter's brother, Arthur Capel, 1st Earl of Essex (1632–1693), as part of a celebrated group of family portraits by Lely, all framed en suite;

Probably by descent to the Earl of Essex's daughter (and the sitter's niece), Lady Anne Capel, who, in 1683, married Charles Howard, 3rd Earl of Carlisle (c. 1669–1738);

Thence by descent until at least 1904, when the painting was recorded hanging at Naworth Castle, Cumbria, in the collection of George Howard, 9th Earl of Carlisle (1843–1911);

Probably by descent to his son, Charles Howard, 10th Earl of Carlisle (1867–1912), who inherited Naworth Castle in 1911, and thence by descent;  

Private collection, England, until acquired in 2019.

List of the Pictures now at Naworth Castle extracted from the Printed Catalogue of Pictures at CASTLE HOWARD and NAWORTH compiled by LORD HAWKESBURY and annotated and corrected by THE NINTH Earl of CARLISLE, 1904, p. 59, no. 29 (described as ‘¾ seated; her head resting on her right hand, and she holds a lute in her left. Dressed in a gold brocaded gown with wide blue sleeves’).
