HISTORICAL NOTE: Henry Flitcroft bought the copyhold of
Frognal Grove in 1741 from Thomas Watson-Wentworth, Earl of
Malton. This house replaced a structure of c1700. Henry
Flitcroft junior inherited the house but leased it out, the
most famous tenant being Edward Montagu, Master in Chancery
who lived there between 1772 and c1794. The house subsequently
passed into the hands of the Street family, into which
Flitcroft's great-granddaughter had married. The architect GE
Street inherited the property in 1871-2 and was responsible
for works here. Also known as Montagu Lodge, Frognal Grove was
subdivided in the 1950s.
