Bearwood

near Wokingham, Berkshire - Walter family


"The estate of Bearwood was formerly an outlying part of the Royal Forest of Windsor.
It was purchased of the Crown in the year 1861, by the then Mr. Walter.
The original purchase consisted of not quite four hundred acres, and shortly afterwards,
Mr. Walter built a house on the estate, and formed a lake of about twenty-seven acres,
and laid out very beautiful and extensive gardens, under the superintendence of Mr. David Stewart.

In the year 1865, Mr. John Walter took the old house down, and had it entirely rebuilt on the same site on a much larger scale, in the Elizabethan style.

John Walter, Esq., of London and Teddington Grove, was founder of the Times newspaper.
He married Miss Frances Landon, and had several children, one of whom, John,
became High Sheriff of Berkshire and co-proprietor,
with his father, of the Times."
