This plan must predate 1794 as after that year the Auditor of the Exhequer's house was given over to the Speaker, Henry Addington (1757-1844). (See also SM 37/1/28). The post of Cofferer of the Household had been abolished in 1782. The New Stone Building, containing the King's Bench Records, is shown in pink wash.
