HOLLAND HOUSE, KENSINGTON, WHERE ONCE ADDISON LIVED AS MASTER

HOLLAND HOUSE, KENSINGTON, WHERE ONCE ADDISON LIVED AS MASTER

No literary man of London has been privileged to live in a more sumptuous home than was Addison's when, through his marriage to the Countess of Warwick, he became the nominal master of Holland House, Kensington. He died in 1719, and the house passed from the Warwick family to Henry, father of Charles James Fox. Throughout the whole of the eighteenth century, however, Holland House remained a famous literary centre as well as the rallying ground of Whig politicians.
