"The great Lord Bacon had chambers here, from which he dates the dedication of his 'Essays.' The garden...was first planted in 1600, and as Bacon was then Treasurer of the Society it is not too much to assume that the author of the essay 'Of Gardens' had a great deal to do with its planning. These gardens, which continued to have an uninterrupted view of Hampstead and Highgate were long a fashionable promenade."
