"...maps held by the Dutch National Archives list the owner of The Content as J Kendall in 1798 and as Ashburner in 1799." Nathan Lucas owned The Content by 1803 when he visited the property, returning again in 1806-7. Transcripts of the detailed journal kept by Nathan Lucas in 1803 are held at the Library of the Linnaean Society and the Natural History Museum in London.

The London Gazette showed that the Content estate was advertised in 1812 to be put up for auction in 1813, together with half of Lot No. 7, in behalf of Alexander Fullerton and John Oliverson as the attorneys of the executors and executrix of Thomas Ashburner plaintiffs in execution, suggesting that the buyer from Thomas Ashburner had not paid some of the purchase price.
