Bushy House :: Shared Description

Bushy House was built in 1663 by William Samwell for Edward Proger, as the lodge of the Ranger of Bushy Park. (Proger had been made Ranger of Bushy Park to reward him for his loyalty to Charles II during his exile.)
It was rebuilt by Charles Montagu, 1st Earl of Halifax in 1714-1715.
In 1797 King George III appointed his son, William, Duke of Clarence, as Ranger of Bushy Park. William (later King William IV) lived at Bushy House, first with his mistress Dorothy Jordan and their ten children and then with his wife Princess Adelaide.
This Grade II* listed building is now part of the National Physical Laboratory.
