NOTES: Queen Adelaide (the widow of King William IV) rented Witley Court for three years from 1843. This drawing was one of several made by John Wood to illustrate an article in the 'Illustrated London News', published on the occasion of her first stay there. The original house was built in 1620, with later additions designed by John Nash in c. 1806. See RIBA84172 for a print probably based on this drawing.
