Sir Charles Lemon with his niece Louisa Ann Dyke, Carclew House, Mylor, Cornwall. Around 1860
Sir Charles Lemon (1784-1868) of Carclew House, a Cornish mine owner, Member of Parliament for Penryn and Sheriff of Cornwall. Taken at his home, Carclew House, his niece, Louisa Ann Dyke (1806-1861) stands beside him. The photograph is mounted on cartridge paper with a handwritten label below "Believe me yrs affecly L A Dyke". Originally owned by the Bonython family, Carclew House and estate were purchased by William Lemon (1696-1760) in 1749 who employed the architect Thomas Edwards to enlarge and modernise the house in the style of Palladio's Villa Ragona. The house was further extended by Sir William Lemon (1748-1824) in the early 19th century by architect William Wood. It was destroyed by fire in 1934 but one wing was restored in the late 1930s to house refugees. There are a few ruins preserved. Photographer: Unknown.
