ca. 1630 Sarah Bunckworth (d.1646), Lady Cordell by ? (Melford Hall - Long Melford, Sudbury, Suffolk, UK)


The only genealogical information I can find for her is thepeerage micro-article for her husband, "Sir Robert Cordell, Bt. lived at Melford Hall, Suffolk, England.

Child of Sir Robert Cordell, Bt.  

1. Sarah Cordell.” Sarah Cordell was presumably named after her mother, presumably seen here.

From shadows.

Sarah Bunckworth (d.1646), Lady Cordell

I have to post this. Here is an old-style deeply goffered van Dyck ruff combined with a new wave wide lace collar and stomacher and jacket bodice. Her dress also apppears to have hanging sleeves, another retro feature. I left what appears to be a headdress intact, but I believe this may be water damage.
