Somerset Estate

I am currently undertaking research on the Somerset estate, which was near Coleraine, County Londonderry.

It was part of the Merchant Taylors' Company of London; then acquired by the Richardson family.

The Richardsons were the second greatest landowners in the county, with 18,159 acres.

I already have a Richardson family lineage.

If any readers are aware of any photographs of Somerset House or demesne, I should be very grateful.

There are unexecuted plans by Nash, it would seem.

Indeed, I think I noticed that. Very little else, though.
