Chelsea Manor, for which the borough of Chelsea, London, is named, is a former royal residence acquired by Henry VIII of England in 1536. It was home to Elizabeth I of England, as Princess, between 1536 and 1548, and then to Anne of Cleves, who died there in 1557. Other famous owners included James Hamilton, 1st Duke of Hamilton, Charles Cheyne, 1st Viscount Newhaven, Sir Hans Sloane, the Bishops of Winchester. There were three different houses on the site, the last of which was demolished in 1825 by Earl Cadogan and replaced with fashionable residential streets - the Cadogan Estate still retain ownership of some of these properties.
