Joseph Marryat senior


Wimbledon House

Wimbledon (Surrey)


The garden at Wimbledon House was largely created by Charlotte Marryat, the wife of Joseph Marryat, after his death in 1824: he had begun to 'improve' the 100 acre grounds between 1815 and 1824. Charlotte Marryat was the third woman to be elected a fellow of the Royal Horticultural Society, c. 1830.
