This is Catherine Carey Howard. She was married to Charles Howard, Baron Effingham, later Earl of Nottingham. She was the daughter of Henry Carey, Baron Hunsdon and Anne Morgan Carey, Lady Hunsdon.

Catherine Carey Howard is referred to as Lady Howard in the wage records for the queen's chamber during the 1570s. She was also a favorite of the queen's. She was responsible for accepting New Year's gifts on behalf of the queen for several years.
