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 granddaughters Maria Sophia Merivale (1853–1928) and Judith Ann Merivale (1860–1945), both of Oxford, inherited the drawing in 1915 (BP111). Judith Merivale gave it in September 1934 to William Trevelyan Turner (b.1892), son of their cousin Henrietta Maria (“Hetty”) Turner, whereafter it is untraced.
