HISTORICAL NOTE: Suffolk Square occupies land bought by the
Earl of Suffolk from the de la Bere's, on which he built
Suffolk House for his own residence; his daughter later sold
much of the land, on which Suffolk Square now stands. James
Fisher acquired land for the development in 1823. The Square
is shown as built on Merrett's Map of 1834.
All listed items in Suffolk Square form a very distinguished


group.

1834-).
