1778 Mary Wadsworth, Duchess of Kent by Sir Joshua Reynolds (location unknown to gogm)

I have no idea who she is. According to Wikipedia, the title of Duke of Kent was inactive and it would stay so until Queen Victoria's father, Edward, became Duke. His predecessor, Henry Grey died in 1740 and had no daughter who married a Wadsworth. I also cannot find this person in thepeerage that often lists Ladies by their maiden names.
