Cliveden

Buckinghamshire, near Maidenhead, Berkshire - Duke of Westminster


"The situation of Cliveden is exceedingly beautiful, looking down, over finely wooded slopes, on the winding Thames, with the Keep of Windsor Castle in the more distant view. Held at one time by George Villiers, the first Duke of Buckingham, who was struck down by the murderous hand of Felton, it went next to his son, of the same name, 'the wicked Duke of Buckingham.' His end was as miserable as it well could be, and as it deserved to be. He was injured by a fall from his horse, from the effects of which he then died, neglected and despised by all, and without a single person near him in his last moments to soothe or soften the conclusion of his evil career.

Since his death, the estate has been in possession of various owners, including the Earls and Countesses of Orkney, until 1819 the property was sold to Sir George Warrender, from whom it was then sold to the Duke of Sutherland, and from him it came next to the Duke of Westminster."
