HISTORICAL NOTE: Henry Flitcroft bought the copyhold of Frognal Grove in 1741 from Thomas Watson-Wentworth, Earl of Malton. This house replaced a structure of c1700. Henry Flitcroft junior inherited the house but leased it out, the most famous tenant being Edward Montagu, Master in Chancery who lived there between 1772 and c1794. The house subsequently passed into the hands of the Street family, into which Flitcroft's great-granddaughter had married. The architect GE Street inherited the property in 1871-2 and was responsible for works here. Also known as Montagu Lodge, Frognal Grove was subdivided in the 1950s.
