Lettice Knollys, daughter of Henry Knollys, Lady Paget, granddaughter of Catherine Carey, great-granddaughter of Mary Boleyn by ? (location ?)

The first Lettice Knollys lived from 1543 to 1634. If this portrait dates to about 1615. the first Lettice would be about 72. This is either a second Lettice Knollys or Lettice’s youthful face from an earlier portrait placed in a ca. 1615 dress. With that insight, it turns out that this Lettice Knollys, according to her husband’s Wikipedia article, lived from 1583 to 1655. Her terse article in thepeerage is here.
