Innocence

This portrait of Nancy Graham, by Sir Henry Raeburn, is in the collection of the Louvre, Paris. It is known as 'Innocence'. It once hung in Bellevue, Church Street, Cromarty.

Nancy was born about 1805 in Spanish Town, Jamaica, the daughter of Francis Graham, a rich sugar planter, and a Miss Jackson.

In 1833, in the East Church, she married her cousin, Alexander Gordon Graham of Bellevue, Church Street.

Nancy died in Cromarty in 1883. Her daughters Jane, Nancy and Henrietta all lived in Bellevue until the 1920s. Henrietta, the last of the sisters, died there in 1938.
