The Royal Glen Sidmouth 1921, etching, pencil signed in the margin, inscribed in plate, 9″ x 10 1/2″, matted.

The Royal Glen was a childhood home for Queen Victoria. Originally a farm house known as Kings Cottage (named for a Mr. King of Bath who bought the property around 1700), it was acquired and renovated by a new owner in 1817 and became known as Woolbrook Cottage and Woolbrook Glen. The Duke and Duchess of Kent occupied the house in 1819-1820 with daughter Victoria, and it was later an orphanage and a boarding house. Queen Victoria’s 50the Jubilee was held there in 1897 and by 1921 the house had become known as the Royal Glen. During WWII, the house was used by the RAF as a convalescence home. Today, the grade 1 listed building continues to be owned and managed by descendants of the family who acquired the property in 1893.
