Heneage Lloyd and his sister, Lucy, painting byThomas Gainsborough

Heneage Lloyd (1742-1776) and his sister Lucy (baptised 1740) were the children of Sir Richard Savage Lloyd of Hintlesham Hall, Suffolk. Heneage became Captain of the Coldstream Guards; Lucy first eloped with a neighbouring baronet, Sir John Barker, and after his death in 1766 married James Hamilton, an equerry to the Duke of York, by whom she had two children.

Stylistically, the painting can be dated to around 1750, which accords with the apparent age of the children.
