      The drawing is not signed with a name, only a symbol. The name on the back is the name of the business that framed the sketch. I think tracking down the artist would be next to impossible. The names do not come up on a Google search.

      Charming painting!

      I'd use the location as the start point of research: Naworth.

      Quick online research shows Naworth Castle-- this may have been the surrounding area.

      The artist may not be a professional, could have been a family member/ friend, etc...

      Additionally, the locations for the framer seem to be in a different part of the country. The frame isn't what I would expect for the 1880s-- it looks more like 20th century, so I would think this was framed 20+ years AFTER it was painted.

      Link to Castle website:

      I'd ask the current owner if the family or symbol is something he is familiar with.
      He is probably very familiar with the history of the Castle/ families/ surrounding area and my provide some clues.
