Lady Jane Allgood of Nunwick Hall, Northumberland with an embroidery of an anemone and tulips worked in long-and-short stitch, part of a set of six chair covers and two screens still extant (though much faded) at Nunwick Hall by ? (location ?)

Presumably this portrait is in Nunwick Hall. The Wikipedia article for Nunwick Hall includes this, “...In 1738 Lancelot Allgood married his cousin Jane Allgood who was heiress to the Nunwick estate  and they built the present three storey five bayed house to a Georgian style design by architect Daniel Garrett…” There is no mention of either Lancelot or Jane Allgood in thepeerage.
