Ewhurst Park, Hampshire

Posted on September 27th, 2011 by alanophrys

My Great Grandfather, William Clark was head gardener at Ewhurst Park in around 1885. I would like to find out more about this garden at the time when he was there. I understand that it was owned by the Duke of Wellington. Also I have a copy of one of my Great Grandfather’s books-The Gardener’s Assistant.Inside it is inscribed “William Clark, Rio de Janiero, 26th June 1874”. I would like to find out more about this and wether it means he went to Rio de Janiero. He was born in Scotland in 1850 so I presume he trained somewhere in Scotland
