In the collection of Miss Elizabeth Crabbe (d. ca. 1970), whose family gave it after her death to a friend, in whose collection it remained in 2006. That owner believed that Miss Crabbe, who was descended from employees of General John Graves Simcoe (1752–1806), acquired the drawing at a sale of Simcoe property early in the twentieth century.
