1763 Susanna Dacre, half-length, wearing a blue satin dress with blue ribbons by circle of Thomas Hudson (auctioned by Bonhams)

I cannot find anything about her in thepeerage, but Bonhams has this note, "There is an old label attached to the stretcher which is indistinctly inscribed 'Miss Susanna Ma[..] Dacre July 23 1763 Aged 25'. Inscribed on another label on the stretcher: 'Sister of Mrs. Edward Anderson (Catherine Dacre) of Newcastle Daughter of Joseph Appleby Dacre'."

From Bonhams; image made lighter and contrast increased by gogm.

Susanna Dacre's dress is very retro, very van Dyck, in comparison to other 1761 portraits. She appears to be wearing a capelet à la Queen Henrietta Maria over a typical square-neck dress.
