The original Frogmore House was built in 1680-4 by Charles II's architect Hugh Mayfor his nephew. It stood on the estates of Great and Little Frogmore, which were bought by Henry VIII in the sixteenth century and let to various tenants.

The name derives from the preponderance of frogs which have always lived in this low-lying marshy area. From 1709 to 1738 the house was leased to The Duke & Duchess of Northumberland and thereafter to a succession of families until Queen Charlotte, needing a country retreat for herself and her unmarried daughters, purchased the lease in 1792.

 

Gardens

The gardens were laid out in the 1790s by Queen Charlotte's Vice-Chamberlain, Major William Price, and by the Rev. Christopher Alderson of Derbyshire. Before that time the gardens had been flat, with no ornamental water. Price and Alderson created the winding lakes, wooded mounds, glades, walks and bridges in the Picturesque style. Fine specimen trees were planted and various garden buildings were erected.
