In 2022 the museum acquired this portrait of Lady Dorothy Rawdon (d.1676). This acquisition was made possible through generous support from The National Lottery Heritage Fund and Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council.
Lady Dorothy Rawdon (Conway), wife of Sir George Rawdon, was the sister of the 1st Earl Conway. Dorothy spent her youth and later life at Lisburn Castle before she died in 1676.
’The portraits can be seen on display as part of our exhibition, ‘Rawdon: an Irish Family Dynasty’.
