Lady Maitland (Catherine Connor, died 1865) by Sir Henry Raeburn (Metropolitan Museum - New York City, New York USA)

This is her brief article from thepeerage, "Catherine Conner F, #349101, d. 6 March 1865

Catherine Conner was the daughter of Daniel Conner. She married Rear-Admiral Sir Frederick Lewis Maitland, son of Captain Hon. Frederick Lewis Maitland of Rankeillour and Margaret Dick, in April 1804. She died on 6 March 1865.

From April 1804, her married name became Maitland." Her husband died childless in 1839 according to his article in thepeerage.


Lady Maitland looks to be very marriagable, hence placing this around 1804. Her dress is under an over-dress with a cowl extending to the sides and back over her shoulders. Beneath is a criss-cross décolletage.
