Henry was the son of Col John Wolrige and Mary Ann Wolrig. His wife was also named Anne. Wolrige. He had two children Brig.-Gen. Sir Robert Gilmour, 1st Baronet of Liberton and Craigmillar and John Gordon Wolrige Gordon.

This appears to the work of Lady Burrard (fl 1847-1849) who worked in Hampshire. A miniature of Minnie Taunton was in the collection of the late Robert Bayne Powell which was inscribed on the reverse painted by Lady Burrard and signed in the front L (?) presumably B - as is in the case of this portrait. (cf. Daphne Foskett, A Dictionary of British Miniatures, Vol 2. plate 32)
