According to the old legend on verso (which we have no reason not to believe) it is a portrait of a certain Mrs Seton-Karr of Kipplaw, painted in 1814 by Miss (correctly: Mrs! Mee (meant is the celebrated London female miniaturist Mrs Anne Mee, nee Foldstone (see her biography below)).

Through a brief online search we found this Mrs Seton-Karr.
She was born in 1793 as Alicia Anne, daughter of William Rawlinson, Esquire of Ancoats Hall, Lancaster.
On 5th August 1812, in London (at Church Saint Mary, St. Marylebone) she married 20 years her senior Andrew Seton (1773-1833), later Seton-Karr of Kipplaw. He was in civil service and later in the East India Company in Bengal.
Obviously this portrait was ordered as a farewell gift for Alicia Anne's relatives before she moved to India with her husband. She was then already mother of 1-year-old son John Seton-Karr (1813-1884) who later became priest-vicar of Berkeley, Gloucester.

Mrs. Anne Mee (nee Foldsone) was born in ca.1770/75 in London and died in 1851. She was a daughter of the artist John Foldsone who died while still young. Anne was educated at a French ladies' school in London. She had artistic talent as a musician, poetess and painter and was a protegee and pupil of Romney. Anne is said to have supported her mother and eight siblings at an early age. She obtained the patronage of George IV (when Prince of Wales) and was working at the Windsor Castle in 1790 and 1791. By 1804 she was asking as much as 40 guineas for a miniature. Sometime before 1804 she married Joseph Mee (died 1849) with whom she had six children before she was 33. Mrs Mee exhibited at the Royal Academy and the British Institute in 1804-37 and she was influenced by Cosway. Her works belong to collections of Her Majesty Queen of Great Britain, Wallace Collection, Victoria and Albert Museum, etc. On the international art market they achieve from time to time very high prices.
