1605-1610 Lady Browne by ? (Royal Albert Memorial Museum - Exeter, Devon, UK)

This may be Mabel Browne, stepdaughter of Countess of Lincoln Elizabeth FitzGerald. Mabel Browne’s Wikipedia article is here. Her article in thepeerage has a portrait found in the Elizabeth Fitzgerald Subalbum, here, that bears a very strong resemblance to the portrait below on this page.

From artuk.org; filled in shadows to resolve false sleeves and brought out details of wheel and skirt in the process.
