Christie’s lot notes have a biographical paragraph: "Frances Norcliffe was the daughter and heiress of Sir William Vavasour of Copmanthorpe, Yorkshire, 1st and last Baronet. She married Sir Thomas Norcliffe (1641-1684) of Langton, near Malton in North Yorkshire, in 1671. They had two children to survive infancy, Fairfax Norcliffe (1674-1721), a Lieutenant Colonel in the 1st Dragoons who was High Sheriff of Yorkshire in 1700 and 1714, and Richard Norcliffe (1676-1697) a Lieutenant in the Royal Navy. After the death of her husband in 1684, Frances married Moses Goodyear, an Aleppo Merchant. She died in December 1731 and was buried in Chelsea. After the death of Francis Best Norcliffe (1851-1912), who did not marry, Langton Hall passed first to his sister and then to his nephew, Cecil Elmslie Howard-Vyse (1901-1958), who was succeeded by his brother, Lieutenant-General Sir Edward Dacre Howard-Vyse (1905-1992), and in turn by his son, the late Richard Howard-Vyse.”
