Portrait by Horsburgh

Thank you to Robert Jones for allowing me to reproduce this painting which has come into his family's possession.  Robert tells me that the the painting painting is approx 4ft x 3ft..  It is in fair condition but may need cleaning.

Questions

The gentleman is wearing a Chain of Office and holding papers.  Robert asks who the man might be, and what might be the approx value of the painting.
