Harvey was the son of Robert Harvey and his wife Jane Jemima Collins daughter of J R Collins of Hatchcourt Somerset. His father was an illegitimate son of Sir Robert Bateson-Harvey, 1st Bt. (died 1825). Harvey was educated at Eton College and Christ Church, Oxford. He was a Captain in the 5th Buckinghamshire Rifle Volunteers and then in the Royal Buckinghamshire Yeoman Cavalry. He was a J.P. and Deputy Lieutenant for Buckinghamshire. The Langley Park estate in Buckinghamshire was bought by his grandfather in 1788, and passed down to him.

According to the records, Sir Robert Bateson Harvey died soon after he had made the plans with his second wife Magdalene Breadalbane Anderson, to have this piano built by John Broadwood and Sons. The piano was finished in 1889 two years after his death. Lady Harvey was then being called the Dowager Lady Harvey when she had the piano delivered. There are several entries showing that because of the death of her husband, it was not unknown for people during this time to move to a different location on the property.

This story helps us understand the amount of work that Broadwood would have put into their Pianos during this time as well. The Lord would have been alive still, so the order had to have taken at least two years to complete.
