Richmond Local History Society


Duke Street,


Orleans House was a home and meeting place for royalty, politicians and gentry in the two centuries that it stood on the Twickenham riverside. The borough was deprived of one of its most historic buildings when the house was demolished in 1926. Without the foresight of local resident The Hon. Nellie Ionides, reputed to be the richest woman in England in the 1950s, it is likely that the glorious Octagon Room would have suffered the same fate. Join us in this talk to discover Nellie’s life, her love of art and dogs, and her legacy to what is now the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames.
