Sir Thomas More

Sir Thomas More, Lord Chancellor : his country-house was at Chelsea, in Middlesex, where Sir John Danvers built his house. Where the gate is now, adorned with two noble pyramids, there stood anciently a Gate-house, which was flat on the top, leaded, from whence there is a most pleasant prospect of the Thames and the fields beyond. On this place the Lord Chancellor More was wont to recreate himself and contemplate.

died in 1535.
