Looking at Chelsea, New York City today; it is hard to imagine that it was once a country estate with a Georgian style manor house, built on the farm of one Jacob Somerindyck, by retired British Major Thomas Clarke; when he purchased the area in 1750. It was Clarke who gave the area its Chelsea name in memory of the Chelsea in London, England. Clarke’s daughter, Charity inherited the estate and, with her husband Benjamin Moore, added to its lands. Their son Clement Clarke Moore inherited the estate in turn and proceeded to give the apple orchard to the Church for the building of a seminary. He went on to have objections to the local authority’s plans of 1811 for road building through his estate before deciding to sub-divide much of it into lots for sale to the ranks of the now rich New Yorkers; however, he placed covenants on the sales which restricted the architectural styles of all new buildings and expressly forbade their use for stabling, manufacturing and other commercial activities. What industrialization there was grew up outside the original estate.
