Footnotes

  • James Wandesford Butler, 1st Marquess of Ormonde married Grace Louisa Staples, daughter of Rt. Hon. John Staples and Hon. Henrietta Molesworth in 1807. He was the son of John Butler, 17th Earl of Ormonde and Lady Frances 'Anne' Susan Elizabeth Wandesford. He was created 1st Marquess of Ormonde (Ireland) on the 29th October 1825. James and Grace had three children: John Butler, 2nd Marquess of Ormonde (1808-1854), Captain Lord James Wandesford Butler (1815-1893) and Lady Louisa Grace Butler (1816-1896).

    The sitter's identity appears on the reverse of a 19th Century rectangular gilt-wood frame in which the miniature had been placed. The inscription reads John Butler Lord Wandes/ forde second son of John/ Earl of Ormonde and Anne/ Wandesforde his wife/ died 1795. This inscription incorrectly identifies the sitter as John, when his name was James. For a portrait miniature of the 2nd Duke of Ormonde, see lot 21.
