Sir Noel Caron
Person Male Died 1/12/1625
Close friend of King James I. Dutch Ambassador to the court, 1609-24. 1602–3 Elizabeth granted him a house in South Lambeth where he lived until his death. From this plan we think this house was about where Vauxhall Grove now is. In 1620, having made money in England, he, founded almshouses, in what is now Wandsworth Road, for seven poor women, leaving their support as a charge on his property by will of 1625.
