Sybil was the wife of Sir William Eden, and mother of Elfrida Marjorie Eden (1887-1943). Marjorie [or Miss Eden] is the subject of the rare watercolor portrait you already have on your site (I believe it dates from1905).  Marjorie married Guy, Lord Brooke, in 1909, and became Countess of Warwick in 1924.

Special thanks to Matt Davies, of Kansas City, a friend of the JSS Gallery, for sending me a  note regarding this image.
