Details

Lord John Russell, twice Prime Minister, lived at Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park from 1847 until his death in 1878. He and his wife Lady Frances took a keen interest in Petersham and Richmond. Their most important contribution was setting up the Russell School, Petersham, which they largely funded. Bertrand Russell, the famous philosopher, was brought up at Pembroke Lodge by his grandmother Lady Russell – an experience he did not enjoy.
