Margaret Owen

Not a very good photograph, but it was getting dark and the camera needed the flash.

This is a watercolour by Blanche Airlie, nee Stanley,who died January 5, 1921. She was the sister of my great grandfather Edward Lyulph Stanley and Katherine Bell, daughter of Edward John Stanley and Henrietta Maria Dillon, granddaughter of John Thomas Stanley and Maria Josepha Holroyd and great granddaughter of John Thomas Stanley and Margaret Owen.

The original, by Joshua Reynolds, I think I remember as a child at Lowndes Square. Dudi thinks it was in the drawing room at Penrhos. Maybe with a little detective work I can find out where it is now.
