Landmarks of Charles Wanderings and a reputed dwelling of Nell Gwynn

Landmarks of Charles Wanderings and a reputed dwelling of Nell Gwynn

Between his departure from England in 1645-6 for the Scilly Isles after Naseby, and his own first return, which culminated in the breaking of every hope at Worcester, September 3, 1651, Charles wandered in France and Holland and also visited the Channel Islands. In September 1640 he crossed to Jersey. He stayed for a few days at Hampton Farm (bottom left) but kept his court at Elizabeth Castle (top left). At Worcester there is a half-timbered house (top right) where he is said to have found refuge after the battle. When, as king, he came into his own, it is hardly surprising that he resolved to treat himself well. Nell Gwynn was one of his recreations, and she is said to have stayed at Lauderdale House (bottom right) in Waterlow Park, London.
