TitleKingston Lacy renovation
DescriptionThis series lists papers largely relating to the work done on Kingston Lacy House for William John Bankes. The work was carried out under his instructions while he was in Italy. The papers contain his detailed instructions about how particular work is to be carried out, lists of items being sent, queries about the work, requests for information, memoranda, opinions and so on. There are also some reports from the clerk of the works in response to William's inquiries. The papers written by WJB are often undated or have a note of the date they were received. Some are clearly directed to his brother George, others are endorsed 'for Osborne' of 'for Seymour' his successive clerks of works. The documents are often working notes; usually there will be several different topics or queries on one sheet.
