This is probably one of the "Mr.Scotts" recorded in Engleheart's fee book as having sat for their portraits in 1790 and 1791.

Edward was equerry to the Prince of Wales (later George IV). He was the last Scott to live at Scotts Hall, Brabourne, Kent, which had been in the family since at the least the 14th Century. The fall of the house had been prophesied by "The Fair Maid of Kent" many years earlier. Edward's wife was reputably Lady Superintendent to the children of George III.
