Georgiana Duchess of Devonshire,
I love Chiswick. I once took a boat ride up the Thams to Chiswick, to visit Burlington House and Hogarth's house.
I thought she lived in Chatsworth which is in Derbyshire?
These grand ladies had many homes. Georgiana spent more time at Devonshire House in London than Chatsworth. This was her retreat home, especially when the gambling got out of control!
I see. Thanks for clearing that up!
I would love to throw a lavish afternoon tea for several dozen of my closest friends in the domed Conservatory! Or perhaps someone wishes to fly me over to do the aforementioned for THEIR friends!
