Drewry occurs as the forename of several generations of the Ottley family, landowners in St Christopher's, West Indies. It may be assumed that Mary Seymour's husband was the grandson and heir of the original Drewry Ottley of St Christopher's and died at Teddington in 1794. Mrs Ottley's portrait was painted shortly before Tilly Kettle left for India in 1768, where he enjoyed considerable success.
