1751 Christian Grant (d.1761), Fourth Daughter of Lord Prestongrange attributed to Allan Ramsay (Berwick Museum & Art Gallery - Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland, UK)

A probable article for her in thepeerage and the bbc.co title (used here) disagree. According to thepeerage she was the fourth daughter (combining the results of two marriages) of Sir Francis Grant of Monymusk whose half-brother William was a Lord Prestongrange. She was born in 1705 and died in 1784. This looks like a woman in her middle forties.
