Maria Matilda Bingham, wife of Henry Baring, with two of her children, presumably James Bridgeman and Anna Maria by Sir Thomas Lawrence (Rijksmuseum - Amsterdam Holland)

Her article in thepeerage is here. She was in her second marriage when this portrait was made. Her first marriage was to one James Alexander, Comte de Tilly. She was the first of Henry Baring's two wives.

Maria Matilda wears a typical Empire formal dress in gleaming white in a portrait that shows how revealing such dresses could be.
