Notes NOTES: Laid out in 1670-1700 on land once known as Gelding's Close, this square became the ambassadorial and political district of the late 17th and early 18th centuries and had been gravelled over by 1720. It declined as a fashionable address after 1730 with the western expansion of London, notably Mayfair.
