Lord Cremorne bought Chelsea Farm, the house depicted below his portrait, in 1778. In 1831 it was purchased by Charles Random De Berenger, Baron De Beaufain who turned it first into a sports club and then opened the Cremorne Pleasure Gardens. Entertainment included concerts, fireworks, balloon ascents and galas. After its closure, the gardens were sold for building and soon built over.
