George Drummond (1758-1789) of Stanmore, second son of Robert Hay Drummond, Archbishop of York, was a senior partner in Drummonds Bank. He married (secondly) Martha, the eldest daughter and heiress of Rt Hon. Thomas Harley on 30 November 1779. This portrait and its companion of Mrs Drummond (Montreal Museum of Fine Arts) were probably commissioned for Harley's new house, Berrington Hall, Herefordshire.
