Kew Palace History
This Palace is originally known as ‘Old Palace’ or Dutch House. It was built in 1631 by Samuel Fortrey. By marriage, it became the property of Samuel Molyneux, Esq., secretary to George II. Frederick, Prince of Wales (son of George II) and subsequently King George III own this house. A musical portrait of Frederick, Prince of Wales and his sisters by Philip Mercier, dated 1733, uses the house as its plain-air backdrop. King George III used it as a temporary residence as well.
