The history of the Grosvenor Estate begins in 1677, with the marriage of the heiress Mary Davies to Sir Thomas Grosvenor, 3rd Baronet (1655 1700). Mary had inherited the manor of Ebury, 500 acres of land north of the Thames to the west of the City of London. This area remained largely untouched by the Grosvenors until the 1720s, when they developed the northern part, now known as Mayfair, around Grosvenor Square. A few generations later, in the 1820s, their focus moved south, to what is now Belgravia, developing Eaton Square, Chester Square, and other famous addresses.
