Holland House, originally known as Cope Castle, was one of the first great houses built in Kensington. The 500 acre estate stretched from Holland Park Avenue to the current site of Earl's Court tube station. His son-in-law, Henry Rich, 1st Earl of Holland eventually inherited the house.
As a widow she made alterations to the outbuildings of Holland House, and established a tradition of play acting which has been revived at Holland House since the LCC tok over the property [in the C20th].
