Bequeathed by the artist in 1816 to James White of Exeter (1744–1825), on whose death it passed to Towne’s residuary legatee John Herman Merivale (1779–1844) and his successors. Merivale’s granddaughter, Emily Harriet Buckingham (1853–1923), inherited the painting in 1915, whereafter it is untraced.
