Ce portrait dépeint Sarah Knowlton de Darley Dale, en Angleterre. Lorsqu’elle apprend le service de Paul Holland Knowlton dans la Rébellion de 1837, elle lui écrit en prétendant être un proche parent. Ces derniers se lient d’amitié, et Sarah Knowlton lui envoie de larges sommes d’argents afin qu’il développe la ville de Coldbrook. La ville adopte éventuellement le nom de Knowlton, afin d’honorer son plus éminent habitant.
