Volume 2, page 202, sitting number 2100. 

[Identified as ‘Lady Amcotts Ingilby’ in the Silvy daybooks, a pencilled inscription verso in a period hand identifies the sitter as ‘Lady Ingilby of Broxholme.’]

Born in London on 18 July 1818, Mary Anne Clementson was the only daughter of John Clementson of Abingdon Street, London. Her grandfather was Sir Thomas Turton, Bart., of Felcourt, Surrey. 

She was baptised on 19 August 1818 at Lingfield in Surrey. 

On 27 July 1843 at St Margaret’s, Westminster, she became the second wife of Sir William Amcotts-Ingilby, 2nd Bt., of Ripley Castle in Yorkshire and of Kettlethorpe Park in Lincolnshire. 

Her husband died, aged 70, on 14 May 1854. On his death, both his baronetcies became extinct. 

Lady Amcotts-Ingilby appears on the 1861 census living at Broxholme, the dower house of Ripley Castle, with her mother Elizabeth Clementson, also a widow, and eight servants, including a butler, a coachman, two lady’s maids and a dressmaker. 

In 1901 she was still living at Broxholme. 

Lady Amcotts-Ingilby died suddenly aged 84, on 22 December 1902 at Broxholme. She left an estate valued at £9622. 

She was buried in the churchyard of All Saints’ Church in Ripley.
