These three drawings show rough initial survey plans of the property known as Burrows Lodge. It can be reasonably assumed that all three drawings were made on 21 August 1826, despite only drawing 3 being dated. Drawing 2 includes a small sectional drawing of a coved ceiling with measurements and freehand plan details of the elliptical arch over the front entrance.
