History

The Belsize Manor was established in 1317 and became a subdivision of the Hampstead Manor in which it was left by the Catholic monks to Westminster Abbey. A number of farms were subdivided into the original manor, which were rented out in order to generate income. In this manner, the King left Westminster Abbey after the Reformation to the Dean. A substantial residence that was owned by the diplomat and courtier Sir Isaac Wake (1581-1632) was included in the number of houses that were on the estate by the beginning of the seventeenth century, including the manor house. Charles West (1626-1687), inherited the Baron de la Warr estate in 1626. After a series of owners in 1714, it was passed to William Paget, the sixth Baron de la Warr. He created a substantial formal garden.
