About Honourable Anne Blount

The English National Trust has this biographical note about her, "Anne Boteler was the youngest of the six daughters of Sir John Boteler, 1st Baron Boteler and Elizabeth Villiers, the Duke of Buckingham's sister. She was married in 1626/7 to Mountjoy Blount, Baron Mountjoy, later 1st Earl of Newport. In 1637, she was induced by her sister, Olivia, the wife of Endymion Porter, to follow the fashion of the ladies in the circle of Queen Henrietta Maria, and declare herself a Catholic. Her husband was strongly opposed to this step, and Lady Newport evidently latterly lived apart from her husband. After her husband's death in 1665/6, she was remarried in 1667, to Thomas Weston, 4th & last Earl of Portland (1609–1688) but died shortly after, in 1669.

She had children by her first husband.

Portraits of her can be recognised by a distinct mole (here quite played down) to the side of her nose.” They then state, "A three-quarter-length portrait of a young woman, standing turned slightly to the right, gazing at the spectator, wearing a rose coloured dress, a rose-brown scarf flying behind her. She is pointing to the right with her right hand, whilst holding her dress with her left hand. Behind is a parapet with the sky in the right background.”
