1753 Arabella Swimmer, née Astley, later Lady Vincent of Stoke D'Abernon by Anton Raphael Mengs (location ?)

According to her article in thepeerage, she married twice. Her first husband, Anthony Langley Swimmer, married only her while she was Sir Frances Vincent’s third wife.

Anton Rapahael Mengs portrayed many Spanish aristocrats so there should be a story about how Lady Arabella came to be portrayed by Mengs.
