Park Street

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.

 Chapter 22 
"We can mean no other," cried Lucy smiling. "Mr. Edward Ferrars, the eldest son of Mrs. Ferrars of Park Street, and brother of your sister-in-law, Mrs. John Dashwood, is the person I mean; you must allow that I am not likely to be deceived as to the name of the man on who all my happiness depends."
