Given by Sir Charles Bagot (1781–1843) to his brother Richard Bagot (1782–1854), Dean of Canterbury (1827–1845) and Bishop of Oxford (1829-1845), probably in the period 1831-1841 when Sir Charles Bagot was not on diplomatic duties abroad. The book was subsequently given by Richard Bagot to Canterbury Cathedral Library, possibly on his resignation in 1845.
