BURLINGTON ESTATE LEASE TABLES

The numbers are as at present or (where sites have been merged) are those of the original sites in the present sequence. Where the present site arrangement differs radically from the original the numbers last in use when the original sites still existed are given (as in Boyle Street). Nineteenth-century alterations have sometimes made it necessary to give Horwood's enumeration (as in Swallow Street).

The information about leases is based on the Middlesex Land Register. This is supplemented and corrected by some counterpart leases of Lord Burlington's, recitals in a larger number of counterpart leases of the Duke of Devonshire, and rentals of c. 1770 and c. 1800, all at Chatsworth, and by a few original leases in various ownerships.

The information about first occupants is mainly based on St. James's parish ratebooks, G.E.C., D.N.B., Burke and other standard works of reference. The complete or partial absence of ratebook entries for 1725 and 1726 has sometimes necessitated imprecision in dates of residence at that period.

Unless otherwise stated, all the leases were from Lord Burlington alone, and included a two-year term at a 'peppercorn' rent.

The layout of the estate is shown on fig. 78, page 445.
