Note: Lady Beauchamp-Proctor had seven sittings with George Romney between 20th July and 16th August, 1780, and paid Romney's 18-guinea fee on 15th May 1871.

Provenance: Langley Park, Norfolk, thence by descent to Rev. Sydney Beauchamp, subsequently purchased by the vendor's family (a cousin of Rev. Beauchamp), for £50 in 1915. References: Alex Kidson, 'George Romney: A Complete Catalogue of his Paintings' (New Haven and London, 2015), catalogue No. 69 as 'Mary Beauchamp-Proctor' (untraced); George Paston, 'George Romney' (Methuen & Co, London, 1903), p. 191; Humphrey Ward & W. Roberts, 'Romney: A Biographical and Critical Essay vol.11' (Thos, Agnew & Sons, London, 1904) p.9, where the authors conflate the entry with a portrait of Isabella Anne Ingram Shepherd.
