Probably taken from a print of a painting by H.W. Pickersgill in the National Portrait Gallery of Illustrious and Eminent Personages of the Nineteenth Century by William Jerdan Vol 3 of 4, London: Fisher, Son, & Jackson, 1832 Hannah More was known in the early 19th century for her philanthropic work, in particular opening schools to educate poor rural children. Fierce opposition from the establishment warned agriculture would suffer if the farmers were educated! She was made popular through her published writings. ref.
