ORR, Patrick Esq. [1773-1848]. Cut silhouette on card of a gentleman with painted gold highlights, mounted in a contemporary hardwood frame measuring 138 x 159mm. On the paper backing is an old ink inscription reading "Patrick Orr Esq" and a pencil date of 1833.
This is almost certainly Patrick Orr (1773-1848) the second son of Patrick Orr (1746-1817) of Bridgeton, Kincardineshire. Patrick Orr junior married in 1814 Margaret Caroline, second daughter of Major Martin Lindsay of Kilconquhar, Fifeshire. He served as Sheriff-Clerk of Forfarshire from 1812-48, the same office held by his father.
