Lady Isabella Erskine (d. 1824), daughter of Henry David Erskine, 10th Earl of Buchan. In 1770 she married William Leslie Hamilton, Attorney-General of the Leeward Islands. The American War of Independence caused them financial difficulties (he had to fund action to suppress gun-runners bringing arms from the Dutch islands) and Isabella left St Kitts for England in 1779. The following year her husband followed but died four days after his arrival. Their property was sent on another ship that was captured by the French. Between 1803 and 1809 she attempted to get compensation from the Government (with the help of Lord Nelson, who testified to the value of Hamilton's information before leaving for Trafalgar) but failed because much of the financial paperwork had been lost at sea. This print was published in 1782, two years after her husband's death, perhaps to aid her marriage prospects. In 1785 she married Rev. John Cunninghame, who became 15th Earl of Glencairn in 1791 According to a note on the mount, this example was presented by Lady Isabella Hamilton to 'Mrs Adams', referring to evidence on the back of the print.
