Unlike the other pictures at Grantham House, which appear to have been collected by the Sedgwicks (with the exception, obviously, of the portraits of General Sir Brian Wyldbore-Smith and his wife) these three pictures were most probably transferred by Anne Brownlow, Lady Cust (1694 - 1779), from Belton when she moved into Grantham House as her dower-house on the death of her husband in 1734, modernised it, and - no doubt - installed these as overdoors; given to the National Trust by the Misses Winifred and Marion Sedgwick in 1944-50
