1753 (?) Ann Paton, Duchess of Ancaster by Allan Ramsay (Paisley Museum and Art Galleries - Paisley, Renfrewshire, UK)

I encountered serious problems with this. There is a Mary Panton, Duchess of Ancaster, but I cannot find her middle name or any reason why this person should be a Duchess of Ancaster - unless part of the name is off. The hair style is good for 1753, even though the dress is better for 1633.
