Administrative/Biographical history:

The Craven family holdings in Paddington were established by William Craven, Lord Craven (died 1697), from 1670 to 1687. His successor William, Lord Craven (died 1739) added to the holdings, purchasing houses and land from Tyburn manor. By 1795 the land was known as Craven Hill, and some development had taken place by 1811 when Robert Shirley, Earl Ferrers, was granted a lease of number 3 Craven Hill. The estate continued to develop as detached and terraced houses were constructed up to 1854.

The Lord at the time these volumes were prepared was William Christian Frederick Craven (1738-1828), the 6th Baron Craven.
