Reference : Lots 100 & 101 Christies, London 15-16th October 1981. A set of 10 with a similar style of leg supplied by John Burroughs (jnr) to Stoneleigh Abbey, Warwickshire in 1709. Although the Burroughs chairs give a close dating for this pair of chairs, they are different in several respects and it would not be correct to attribute them to him purely on the strength of the leg design.
DEFM p 133 contains an entry for Burroughs, although it confuses Burroughs senior with junior..
