48 Belgrave Square was occupied for the same family for 170 years.

The house was bought in 1840 by Col. Christopher Hamilton MP from the Grosvenor Estate and was the Hamilton family's main London house, the house eventually passed to his granddaughter Sarah Winter in 1890 who continued to live there until her death in 1945. During Mrs Sarah Winter's ownership the house, under the name Hamilton House was the setting for some of London's biggest social events, the annual Hamilton House Christmas Ball was a key feature in the London social calendar. The house was also linked to huge controversy in the run up to the Second World War, Mrs Winter, a known Nazi supporter, used the house as a way of raising money for the Anglo-German Fellowship.

The house was not retained after the war instead being rented out, the family retained a flat in the service part of the house.

It currently serves as the residence of the Mexican Ambassador to the United Kingdom.

Belgrave Square, SW1X

Thomas Cubitt’s greatest achievement, Belgrave Square, is the grandest and largest of the squares, and is the centrepiece of Belgravia.

The original scheme consisted of four terraces, each made up of eleven white stucco houses, with the exception of the east terrace, which was made up of twelve. Detached mansions were originally built in three corners of the square, with a large private garden in the centre.

The square took its name from one of the Duke of Westminster’s subsidiary titles, Viscount Belgrave, with the village of Belgrave in Cheshire being only two miles from the Grosvenor family’s main country residence.

Most characteristic, are the large statues and sculptures that adorn the central garden. These include statues of Christopher Columbus, Simón Bolívar, José de San Martín, Prince Henry the Navigator, and a sculpture entitled Homage to Leonardo, the Vitruvian Man, by Italian sculptor Enzo Plazzotta.

John Rocque Map of London (1762) FREE DOWNLOAD
John Rocque (c. 1709–1762) was a surveyor, cartographer, engraver, map-seller and the son of Huguenot émigrés. Roque is now mainly remembered for his maps of London. This map dates from the second edition produced in 1762. London and his other maps brought him an appointment as cartographer to the Prince of Wales in 1751. His widow continued the business after his death. The map covers central London at a reduced level of detail compared with his 1745-6 map.
