1787 Georgina Ann Poyntz by George Romney (location unknown to gogm)

She is not to be confused with Georgiana Spencer, the Duchess of Devonshire. Her article in thepeerage, with this image, is here. She married twice, but her first marriage was annulled by Act of Parliament.

As of 8 May 2015, this is still the largest version of this portrait that can be found using Google.

It takes a big hat to cover a big coiffyre. The rest of Georgina Poyntz' dress appears to be very simple.
