Possibly Hannah Ludwell Lee and Two Children

A woman dressed in an elegant gown sits with an infant in her lap and an older child at her side. The infant wears flowers in her hair. There is some doubt as to the subjects of this portrait by English painter Charles Bridges, but it bears a strong resemblance to Bridges’ portrait of Hannah Ludwell Lee. If this is the case, the two young children would most likely be Hannah Lee, later Hannah Lee Corbin, and her brother Philip Ludwell Lee.
