Suffolk House from his own residence; his daughter later sold
much of the land, on which Suffolk Square now stands. Land for
the Square was bought by developer James Fisher in 1823,
villas on the west side are shown on Merrett's 1834 Map.
All the listed buildings in Suffolk Square form a very
distinguished group.
