It has been suggested that this bust and one of an unidentified man were sent by Henry Cheere as examples of his work. However, it is recorded by Milo Keynes that the architect John Carr ordered two plaster busts of Shakespeare and Newton for Fairfax House, Castle Gate York in 1762 from John Cheere.
