A Topographical and Statistical description of the County of Middlesex ,etc (1810) by George Alexander Cooke
Entering Bond Street, famous for its shops and its loungers; we proceed through Bruton Street to
Berkeley Square, which we have already noticed, and continuing our walk through Davies Street and
Orosvenor Street enter Grosvenor Square, which is surrounded by extremely grand though not uniformly
built houses. The centre of this square is occupied by a handsome shrubbery, neatly railed
in, and containing a gilt equestrian statue of George I. The square takes its name from Sir Richard
Grosvenor, Grosvenor, Bart, ancestor of Earl Grosvenor, who lirst projected it.
