A view in ink of the ruins of Beaumont, near Gloucester Green at Oxford, formerly a palace of King Richard II, drawn by S.H. Grimm. Beaumont Palace was originally built in 1132 as a hunting lodge by Henry I. Richard I and his brother John were born here. The Carmelite order arrived in Oxford in 1256 and in 1316 were granted a site in the grounds by the King. In 1828, Beaumont Street was laid out on the site of the former palace.
