Marylebone: Wimpole House, W1
Marylebone: Wimpole House, W1
This Gothic Victorian extravagance in terracotta is a prominent insert into the surrounds of the austere and simple Georgian houses of the Edward Harley estate, at the junction of Wimpole Street with New Cavendish Street. It dates from 1893, so it is about 150 years newer than the buildings around it. The foundation stone was laid in September 1892 by Mary Mason Lithgow.

The FreeBMD website LinkExternal link has a transcribed record of the marriage of a Samuel Lithgow to a Mary Mason Hall in 1857 in the Marylebone Registration District, and the death of a Mary Mason Lithgow aged 73 in 1900 in the Hendon Registration District so this was almost certainly her.
