Another page of the present almanac has a pencil drawing of Bushy House. Bushy House was built in 1663 and was the official residence of King William IV and Queen Adelaide until the king’s death in 1837, after which she continued living there as dowager queen until 1849. The drawing is also signed ‘George Hayter’, referring to the English painter who had studied at the Royal Academy School. Having spent his time between Italy and London, George Hayter (1792 – 1871) was close to the British monarchs. All of the aforementioned facts allow the suggestion that this almanac might stem from the circle around Queen Adelaide, and indeed may possibly have belonged to her.
