The Ladies Coke

The Ladies Coke


Listed in the Silvy daybooks as the 'daughters of the Countess of Leicester', these are two of the daughters of Thomas William Coke (1822-1909), 2nd Earl of Leicester, and his first wife, Juliana Whitbread. This marriage produced seven daughters, namely, Lady Julia Coke (1844-1931), Lady Anne Coke (1845-1876), Lady Gertrude Coke (1847-1943), Lady Mary Coke (1849-1929), Lady Winifred Coke (1851-1940), Lady Margaret Coke (1852-1922) and Lady Mildred Coke (1854-1941). Given the apparent age of the sitters in this portrait, I would presume that they are the two eldest of the seven girls.

Photographed in London on 2 July 1861 by Camille Silvy.
