It was bought by Henry Frederick, Prince of Wales (1594 – 1612) in 1612 and when he died later that year was passed to his brother Charles later crowned Charles I (1600 –1649). The house then changed hands a few times in the turbulent times of the English Civil War and its aftermath inluding the Murray family. In 1660 the lease of Berkhamsted was taken on by the Lord Treasurer, Jerome Weston, 2nd Earl of Portland (1605–1663) however a fire broke out and parts of the house were completely destroyed. Reconstruction was hastily commenced, probably financed by John Sayer who took ownership of the house shortly after it was rebuilt. The Sayer family remained in residence at Berkhamsted Place until 1716, when they sold the lease to William Atwell. The House was demolished in 1967

The first in a set of five prospect views of London, with key from one, 'The New Bridge at Westminster' to eleven, 'Part of the Treasury'. The view, first published in 1749, shows the final construction of Westminster Bridge before it's completion in 1750, as well as the Houses of Parliament as remodelled by architect Sir John Soane before the building was destroyed in the fire of 1834. This set was considered the most ambitious in the series of eighty-seven detailed views in England and Wales, published over thrity years. The impressive scale of the set allowed the Buck brothers to illuminate the north bank of the Thames in far greater topographical detail than their predecessors. The engraved plate number '41' in the top right corner indicates this series is from the 1778 re-issue published by Robert Sayer.

[Cabinet-makers] Mess.rs Morgan & Sanders,
[Cabinet-makers] Mess.rs Morgan & Sanders, Catherine St. Strand.
No.8, of Ackermann's Repository of Arts &c. Pub. Augt. 1st 1809, at 101 Strand London.
Fine hand coloured engraving. Sheet 145 x 235mm (5¾ x 9¼").
Specialists in the manufacture of “metamorphic” furniture, upholsterers and cabinet-makers Thomas Morgan and Joseph Sanders operated the highly successful firm of Morgan & Sanders. The firm flourished between 1801 and 1820. Sanders was a highly innovative designer, patenting designs and improvements to “The Metamorphic Library Chair,” “The Imperial Dining Table” and “Merlin’s Mechanical Chair.” They marketed aggressively, advertising in both London and provincial newspapers, and supplied furniture to not only the hero of the time, Lord Horatio Nelson, but enjoyed Royal patronage, as well. Much of what the company designed can be called campaign furniture, and they crafted furniture of “transportable comfort” aimed at the Army and Navy markets. In fact, both the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich and the Royal Naval Museum shows examples of their work. After the death of Joseph Sanders in 1818, the company was renamed Morgan & Co. and sold to their foreman, John Durham, in 1820. Numbered 'Plate 10. Vol. 2.' upper right, from Rudolph Ackermann's 'Repository of Arts' periodical, published from 1809-1829. A series of the firm’s designs were published in the magazine between 1809 until 1815. The formal title of the publication was "Repository of Arts, Literature, Commerce, Manufactures, Fashions, and Politics", and it discussed and illustrated day to day life, and influenced English taste in fashion, architecture and literature.

The Cadogan Pier Cheyne Walk Chelsea.
The Cadogan Pier Cheyne Walk Chelsea.
N. Handford Esq. Archt. C. Warren, delt.
Published April 17th 1841, by T. Faulkner, Chelsea.
Very scarce lithograph, two perspectives (viewed from the bank and the river) printed on a single sheet. Tipped into album page, sheet 330 x 485mm (13 x 19").
There was insufficient accommodation on the riverbank for passenger steamboats in the 1840s and piers were built into the Thames to accommodate them. Cremorne Gardens had its own landing place, with a regular service from London. In 1840 Old Swan pier and Chelsea Mall pier served the steamboats, but by 1841 Earl Cadogan had erected Cadogan pier in Cheyne Walk, designed by N. Handford, catering for a large number of summer passengers. The pier was rebuilt c. 1875 to accommodate Albert Bridge. Perhaps from the architect's prospectus.
