Elizabeth, Lady Wilbraham, née Mytton by Sir Peter Lely (Weston Park - Weston-under-Lizard, Staffordshire, UK)

Lady Elizabeth may have been the mystery architect for some 400 buildings. She mentored Christopher Wren and helped him design 18 of the 52 Wren churches built in London after the Great Fire. Her Wikipedia article is here and her article in thepeerage is here.

She married at the age of 19 in 1651 so this image is posted around the year 1651. She had three daughters, Mary, Grace, and Elizabeth.

I do not know if these sleeves are split by large slashes or if the sleeves are made of panes - I am guessing these are slashed sleeves.
