William Andrews Nesfield
Person Male Born 1793 Died 1881
The Regent's Park plaque has the date of birth as 1794 but this contradicts all the other sources we have found, which have 1793. Nesfield was a significant Victorian garden designer who had a reputation for creating elaborate parterres and terraces, including that at the Palm House in Kew Gardens. Nearing retirement William was assisted in the implementation of the Avenue Gardens by his son Markham Nesfield.
