A painter of miniatures, little is known about Hetty Benbridge except that she was the wife of Henry Benbridge, portrait painter of Philadelphia and later of Charleston, South Carolina.  She joined him there in 1773 with their baby son, and from that time she is not mentioned, causing historians to think she died shortly after her arrival there.

Only ten miniatures by her have been found, all done before the Revolution and unsigned.  She is mentioned in the autobiography (showing 500 of 1033 characters).
