Philippa, Lady Isham (d.1786), Second Wife of Sir Edmund Isham by Thomas Hudson (Lamport Hall - Lamport, Northamptonshire UK)

The only reference I could find for Lady Philippa in thepeerage was this sentence in the article about Sir Edmund Isham Isham (yes - the name Isham repeats), "On 4 May 1751 married 2nd Philippa (died 17 Dec 1786), only daughter of Richard Gee, of Orpington, Kent."


Lady Philippa wears a splendid example of a robe à la Française with panniers, meandering ruching decorative strips, and flaring engageantes in this Hudson portrait.
