Arlington Street

157, Piccadilly (SW1) Derives its name from Henry Bennett, Earl of Arlington, a member of the "Cabal" in the reign of Charles II. (Reference: Jesse's London, vol. I, p. 71) In 1708 this street was inhabited by the Duke of Richmond, Lord Guildford, Lord Kingston, Lord Brooke, and Lord Cholmondeley; in 1749 by John Pitt, member for Wareham, and Charles Horatio Walpole, member for Callington. Horace Walpole dated many of his letters from this street, in which he resided for several years. (Reference: Smith's Streets of London, p. 29)
