This is probably BP224, 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 BP224 in May 1915. On 12 April 1946 this drawing was sold by Judith Merivale’s executors to Agnew’s (no.4545), where on 17 March 1947 it was sold for £70 to Mrs Eustace Palmer of Fencewood House, Hermitage, Newbury, in whose family it remained in 1971 but is thereafter untraced.
