The New Park of Richmond, later called Twickenham Park, passed to Edward Bacon in 1574 and to the English philosopher, Francis Bacon, in 1593. In 1608 the property passed to Lucy Russell, Countess of Bedford. The courtier and poet Cecily Bulstrode died at Twickenham Park on 4 August 1609. In 1618 the Countess Bedford gave it to a relative, Sir William Harrington, Member of Parliament for Hertford. Harrington sold it to Mary Home, Countess of Home, a cousin of Lady Bedford, in 1621.
The property was acquired from the Countess of Home by Sir Thomas Nott, a Royalist Army officer, in 1640. Nott remained there until 1659 when he sold it to a Mr Henry Murray. In 1668 Murray sold it to John Berkeley, 1st Baron Berkeley of Stratton, another Royalist Army officer, who died in 1678.
In 1685 the Berkeley family sold the property to Robert Brudenell, 2nd Earl of Cardigan. The property was then bought by Sir Thomas Vernon, Member of Parliament for Whitchurch, in 1698 and by Algernon Coote, 6th Earl of Mountrath in 1743.
In 1766 the property passed to the Harriet Pelham-Holles, Duchess of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, who set about mixed farming in the park, and in 1788 it passed to Lord Frederick Cavendish, a British Army officer.
