1831 Maria Theresa, Countess of Shrewsbury black and white

I got this wrong! She was listed as Sarah Elizabeth Talbot, but the original color portrait is available from bbc.co (next image) as Maria Theresa, Countess of Shrewsbury. A brief genealogical sketch of her is here. She was a Talbot who married a Talbot. The name Maria Theresa is popular for Catholic girls and her biographical sketch shows her family was Irish and Catholic.
