    Where purchased by the present owner

    The daughter of the diplomat, Sir Luke Schaub, Frederica Augusta Schaub married William Lock in January 1767. Seven years later he purchased and rebuilt Norbury Park near Mickleham, Surrey, where the Locks entertained many French emigrés, including Madame de Staël and Fanny Burney (later d'Arblay). The dining room at Norbury Park was known for the decorative scheme carried out by George Barret (1728/32-1784) and Giovanni Battista Cipriani (1727-1785). Given that the Locks' eldest son, also William, was born in 1767, the present work can be dated to circa 1770.
