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 May 1915 (BP169), and before the death of Judith Merivale it passed to their nephew Charles Herman Merivale (1879–pre-1962). By 1956 the drawing was the property of Francis Temple-West, the second husband of Blanche Liddell whose first husband, John William Merivale (1887–1916), was another Merivale nephew and the brother of Charles Herman Merivale. On 18 June 1956 Temple-West sold the drawing to Agnew’s (no.8336) with FT096, FT566, FT603, FT803. Agnew’s sold it on 2 February 1957 to a collector for £75, whereafter it is untraced.
