Hampton House on the Thames at Hampton, Middlesex, the residence of David Garrick. Capability Brown advised on the layout of the gardens. After Garrick died in 1779, his wife Eva continued to live in the villa until her death at the age of 98 in 1822. After Mrs Garrick died a sale of pictures and some of the furniture took place. Mrs Garrick's solicitor, Thomas Carr, bought the estate and tried to keep everything as it had been in Garrick's time. He and his wife showed visitors round and even installed a replica statue in the Temple in the grounds (at left). Published in a series of views of important English houses.
