Fuller information

This area was once within the Manor of Chelsea, whose owners included Westminster Abbey and Henry VIII. The manor was purchased by Hans Sloane in 1712, and when he died his estate was divided between his daughters. Elizabeth, who was married to Charles Cadogan, had the eastern part, and this became the Cadogans' London estate. In 1771/4 discussions took place between Lord Cadogan and the architect Henry Holland, son-in-law of 'Capability' Brown, who wished to lease c.90 acres between Knightsbridge and the south of Sloane Square for his 'Hans Town' development.
