About Hester Harington
From Kate Merson (1) discussing Jones, Philippa (2009). "Chapter 9: The Mysterious Mistress and the Tailor's Foster Daughter". The Other Tudors: Henry VIII's Mistresses and Bastards. London: New Holland Publishers (UK) Ltd. pp. 212–235. Page 228 (see 3)
"Jones does provide one or two details on Ethelreda that I am prepared to accept. One is the existence of a portrait sold in 1942 to an unknown collector. It is described as three-quarter length with the subject in an “embroidered dress.” At the same time, the portrait of Ethelreda’s daughter Hester also vanished. It was described as a child holding a book."
