 “Many of the Portraits come from the famous “Clarendon Gallery of Portraits”, through Lady Catherine Hyde, daughter of Henry, Earl of Clarendon, and wife of Charles, Third Duke of Queensberry. She took up energetically the great “Douglas Cause”, and although there was no relationship, she persuaded her husband to leave to Mr. Douglas, afterwards Lord Douglas, the estate of Amesbury, and her share of the Clarendon Gallery of Portraits”. [Auction Catalogue] Catalogue of Historical Portraits the Property of the Rt. Hon. The Earl of Home Removed from Douglas Castle, Bothwell Castle and The Hirsel […] Christie, Manson & Woods, 8 King Street, St James’s Square, London, 20 June 1919 (p. 16). It is uncertain when exactly the Duchess of Queensberry’s collection was relocated to Scotland. In 1788 the Queensberry Collection was still at Amesbury (See Picturesque Views Of The Principal Seats Of The Nobility And Gentry, In England And Wales. By The Most Eminent British Artists. With A Description Of Each Seat, p. 3).
 In Scottish Tourist; being a Guide to the Picturesque Scenery and Antiquities of Scotland (1850), there is a brief description of the Douglas-Home Collection at Bothwell House. Ten portraits by Sir Peter Lely, including one of Nell Gwynn, are recorded hanging in the breakfast and dining rooms (p. 108).
