Does some one know where I can find information about Dropmore in Buckinghamshire. I only know it was built in 1792-1794 by Samuel Wyatt for Lord Grenvilele, prime minister of George III. And the house burnt down in 1990.

Thx in advance.

With kind regards,

Dropmore House and the surrounding estate was built on land purchased by William Wyndham Grenville in 1792. Grenville (born 25/10/1759, died at Dropmore on 12/1/1834) led a varied political life as MP for Buckinghamshire, Leader of the House of Lords, Speaker of the House of Commons, and even Foreign Secretary before becoming Prime Minister from 1806-1807.

thx for the links

I am afraid it will be very difficult to find a good pic of Dropmore on the net.

And Peter, especially thx for your link, I think this database will be a lot of fun for me.
