A three-quarter-length portrait of the brother of Mary Liddell who married John Myddelton (1685 - 1747), square on, left hand in jacket, standing, turned slightly to the right, head inclined slightly to left, gazing at spectator, wearing a blue suit, white long, loosely- hanging stock, shirt frills at wrists, sword hilt to right, leaning on his right arm against a pedestal, the fingers of his left hand tucked into his coat at the waist. This may be the 'Half Lengthe Picture' for which Dahl was paid 30 guineas by J. Myddelton, 27 July 1734, with a further 3 guineas for frame.

(Shown on diagrammatic hang [east wall, bottom register] and manuscript picture list) as “24. Mr Leddell.” and thence by descent; with some of the contents, in 1978, that were acquired along with Chirk Castle from Lt-Col Ririd Myddelton (1902–1988) by the National Land Fund and handed, on loan for 99 years, to the Secretary of State for Wales (In 1981 Chirk was transferred into the ownership of the National Trust)
