The plan is dedicated to William Bentinck, 2nd Duke of Portland, in whose possession the original survey was, according to an inscription at the lower edge. George Vertue (1684–1756) was an engraver and antiquary, whose patron was Margaret Bentinck, Duchess of Portland, who presumably enabled Vertue to copy the survey.
