The gardens in Berkeley Square

Uploader's Comments

Berkeley Square was named after John Berkeley, first Lord Berkeley of Stratton, who took possession of the land to the north of his newly acquired house in Piccadilly in 1675. The 4th Lord Berkeley and his son John entered into an agreement with two carpenters, Edward Cook and Francis Hilliard, for a building lease of about six and a half acres of the Berkeley Fields for the development of their estate.
