That looks like Rebecca Rolfe a distant cousin of mine.

Country Gal said...

Nope not a clue !

Country Gal said...

I know there are a few painters that paint from photos to make them look like the person was in an 18th century portrait or in what ever scenery . But again I don't know who it is here ! Looking forward to finding out .

Christine said...

I have no idea! Be back for the answer!

Sandra said...

No clue...

It is Pocahantes. This is the only known portrait of her. It was of her when she was in England. I believe she died soon after. She was very young at her death---only about 22 or so...

Linda Kay said...

No idea, but don't think I'll claim her as a relative.

Valerie said...

Vaguely familiar.... will be back to see the answer.

Red said...

I don't know but I think it's a guy! I may be extremely embarrassed for this prediction.

William Kendall said...

Pocahantas?

Rajesh said...

That is a great photo. I think it is Pocahontas.

Come Away With Me said...

Is that not Pocahontas? Some dim memory seems to tell me so.

Hetty said...

I think it must be you! Groetjes, Hetty

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

We will have to find out tomorrow. Looks 16th century.

cjsrq said...

Debbie said...

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Pocohantas? Don't laugh if I'm way way off.

Kay G. said...

I am thinking this must be a Native American woman and I think I should know the name but I could be totally wrong.

genie said...

I don’t have a clue, but she certainly is interesting. You got us this time :-)

Bethany Carson said...

John Rolfe's wife? :)

An Historical Lady said...

Well, I posted the answer to your mystery portrait the same day you posted this, (correctly), but I see you did not include my comment here. I guess only those who did NOT know the answer were allowed to have their comment published.

Thank you everyone, I appreciate very much you all joining in. I was impressed at how many of you knew the answer when I read your comments. I am not sure I would have known if I had not visited Jamestown and saw her portrait. However, this is what I love about blogging, it makes me so curious and I love learning every day.
