About Henry 'the Magnificent' Hoare, Il

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Hoare

Henry Hoare II (1705–1785), known as Henry the Magnificent, was an English banker and garden owner-designer.

Born the son of Henry Hoare I and educated at Westminster School, Henry Hoare dominated the Hoare family through his wealth and personal charisma. Henry was a partner for nearly 60 years in C. Hoare & Co: his nickname, "Henry The Magnificent", derived in part from his influence as a great patron of the Arts, but more particularly because he laid out the gardens at Stourhead in Wiltshire, an estate bought by his father. The gardens were admired as a showplace and Capability Brown, the renowned landscape gardener, was well known to Henry.

In 1734 he was elected Member of Parliament for Salisbury

He died in 1785 leaving Stourhead to his grandson, Richard Colt Hoare.
