Monmouth House in the 1830s, a watercolour by Elizabeth Gulston

Monmouth House was erected on the site of an old Manor House, demolished in 1687. This belonged to the Lawrence family. Although named as one house, actually there were four houses. The double doorway in the centre led through a passage way to the garden. The houses were named after Ann, Duchess of Buccleuch, widow of the Duke of Monmouth. She lived here from 1715 to 1730. The houses were demolished in 1835 when Upper Cheyne Row was built.
