    Notes 
    • Sarah, daughter of Richard Boddicott (b.1730) and Sarah Tyssen (b.c.1731) married in 1782, Samuel Tyssen (1740-1800). Together they had a son Samuel Tyssen (l786-1845) and a daughter Sarah Tyssen (c.1790-1854). As their mother died when the children were infants, Samuel became a ward of William Hougham of Barton Estate, Canterbury; and Sarah became a ward of her Mother's cousin Solomon Hougham the Goldsmith. Sarah's mother, Sarah, was the eldest child of the wealthy Samuel Tyssen and his wife Sarah Hougham.
      Daphne Foskett records that in the same year, 1781, Smart also painted a portrait of Sarah's husband, Samuel. This portrait, in the collection of Lord Wharton, is slightly smaller than the present lot and depicts Samuel Tyssen, wearing a leaf-green coat, presumably to complement the present portrait of his wife. See Daphne Foskett, John Smart, the man and his miniatures, 1964, ill.pl.2, fig.4. [2]
    • Sarah and her husband Samuel are second cousins
