Notes:
Somerset Archibald Beaumont, a Liberal member of Parliament in the 1860s and 1870s, was also one of the founders of the Anglo-Austrian Bank. Thomas W. Sears stayed with him at his home in Shere, Surrey, for a few days during his 1906 trip to England. Beaumont's country property included a conservatory attached to the house, a bowling green, and extensive plantings of ornamental and specimen trees and shrubs, all of which are documented in Sears's photographs. Although some sources refer to the property's name as "Hurstcote," the potential for confusion with other properties of the same name has led the Archives of American Gardens to adopt the name "Beaumont Garden."
Persons associated with the garden include: Somerset Archibald Beaumont (former owner, ca. 1890-1921).
