On first page, with the index, are the name Margaret Weld and the date 1722. The slipcase, made later, is dated 1522, but this is either incorrect or a deliberate misrepresentation.
Margaret Weld was the daughter of Sir James Simeon, the Baronet of Chilworth. In 1701 she married Humphrey Weld of Lulworth Castle in Dorset. She had four children: Edward, Thomas, Mary and Elizabeth. In addition to this volume, her artistic talents were preserved in an engraving of Lulworth Castle, held by National Archives of the United Kingdom. She died in 1737.
Bookplate of Thomas Weld, Esqr., Lulworth Castle. This is believed to be Margaret Weld's grandson or great-grandson, both of whom were named Thomas and resided at Lulworth Castle. Her own son Thomas took the surname Simeon, Margaret Weld's maiden name.
