1629 Margaret Dodding by follower of Gheeraerts (Roy Precious Antiques and Fine Art)

MutualArt.com states the Gheeraerts follower is Sir William Segar. An article in Wikipedia mentioned a member of the Dodding family, George, as a "zealous Roundhead." Margaret was his relative, but I cannot find anything else about her.

Margaret Dodding is dressed in black, presumably a pro-Puritan political statement, in this 1629 portrait.
