1662-1665 Margaret Spencer, Lady Arundell of Wardour by John Michael Wright (Trerice - Newquay, Cornwall, UK)

I have also seen this called Mary at the-athenaeum.org and artuk.org (where this image came from), but thepeerage, geni.com, and the UK National Trust Web site refer to this as a portrait of Margaret Spencer. According to geni.com there were two Margaret Spencers born in 1627 - this Margaret who died in 1704 and another Margaret who was Countess of Shaftesbury and died in 1693.
