The foundations of the Cadogan Estate were established in 1717 when Charles, 2nd Baron Cadogan, married the daughter of Sir Hans Sloane, who had purchased the Manor of Chelsea in 1712. Beautifully illustrated, this collection of essays by expert commentators looks at the history and lineage of this noble family and the formation of the estates as we know it today, focusing on the architectural and horticultural heritage that has shaped the built environment of the area, the economic and social impact of the two world wars, twentieth-century arts and culture, pioneering fashion trends and the changing face of retail in Chelsea.
