John Rous of Henham Hall, Suffolk, succeeded his father as sixth Baronet in 1771. He was elected to the House of Commons as Member of Parliament for Suffolk in 1780 and held the seat until 1796. In that last year he was raised to the peerage as Baron Rous of Dennington. In 1821 he was created Viscount Dunwich and Earl of Stradbroke. Aside from his parliamentary endeavours John Rous was a keen follower of the turf. He owned a stud farm and in 1815 his colt, Tigris, won the 2,000 Guineas. 

The bust is unique in marble. The likeness is carefully described and the marble retains its pristine surface. A plaster version was offered in the 1823 sale of Nollekens studio as lot 66.
