Elizabeth Countess of Suffolk by George Perfect Harding (auctioned by Christie's)

She had 10 deliveries, not all of whom survived to adulthood, including Katherine Howard. Her article in thepeerage is here. Her mother-in-law was Catherine Knyvett.

It looks like people were unaware of psittacosis at the time.

Countess Elizabeth is presumably carrying a child in this portrait of her wearing a décolleté-cut dress with a higher waistline.
