Originally the property of Lord Nelson, purchased for Merton Place, Surrey, by lady Emma Hamilton. Merton was purchased in 1801 by Nelson, on the wishes of Emma Hamilton, who set about refurbishing the house, and decorating the property in the fashion of the day. It is recorded that Nelsons friend Lord Minto remarked that Emma had decorated the house with many mirrors, to make the rooms look larger. He is quoted as saying, "the whole house, staircase and all is covered with nothing but pictures of her and him, of all sizes and sorts, and representations of his navel actions, coats of arms, pieces of plate in his honour, an excess of vanity that counteracts its own purpose" Lord Nelson lived happily at Merton Place, from 1801, initially with both Lord and Lady Hamilton, and subsequently with Emma and their beloved Horatia, until Nelsons death, in the Autumn of 1805.
