Charles Kynaston Mainwaring was a keen amateur gardener and he travelled
extensively on the continent. It is believed that he was personally
responsible for much of the design of the garden at Oteley and for the
features therein. His house, Oteley Park, built for him in an Elizabethan
style on the site of an earlier building between 1826 and 1830 and extended
in 1842 was demolished c.1960. B.O.E. p. 226; Peter Reid, Burke's and
