Notes NOTES: Southampton MP William Chamberlayne created his picturesque estate overlooking Southampton Water and built his marine villa in 1801. The house was in ruinous condition by the 1940s and has since been demolished. This print was prepared for Architectural and picturesque views of noble mansions in Hampshire taken and drawn on stone by J Hewetson (London: James Carpenter & Son, 1830) and must have been created no later than 1829, the year that Chamberlayne died.
