Similar plan as MC 184/10/1

Probably draft for MC 184/10/1 but lacking some detail (e.g. boats on Thames). Coloured. No surveyor given. On dorse an unfinished park layout and manuscript map of the coast of Ayrshire.
The design of the garden at Marble Hill is attributed to Charles Bridgman and Alexander Pope. For more details see [website accessed June 2018] and Alexander, Magnus and others, 'Marble Hill, Twickenham, Greater London: Landscape Investigations' (English Heritage, 2017), available on the searchroom shelves.
Information supporting an alternative view was supplied by Janine Fotiadis-Negrepontis in June 2018, suggesting that MC 184/10/2 is a proposed garden design for Marble Hill, c. 1750 drawn up by James Dorret (fl. 1744-1761), and likely commissioned by the Duke of Argyll. James Dorret was cartographer to Archibald Campbell, 3rd Duke of Argyll, a trustee at Marble Hill who bought the estate on behalf of Henrietta Howard, Countess of Suffolk. Argyll was a keen amateur horticulturist and the 1766 plan of his lost garden at Whiten (drawn up by James Dorret) bears a striking resemblance to the garden proposal drawn up for Marble Hill, Twickenham. Other papers at the Norfolk Record Office (NRS 8899/52 and NRS 8899/51) state that 'The present Duke of Argyll purchased a field called Marble Hill, upon part of which his Grace erected a house and planned out the rest for a garden continuing possessed thereof till the year 1748.' The map of the coast of Ayrshire on the back of MC 184/10/2 may be based on part of James Dorret's 1750 map of Scotland.
