He was with William Thomson at Wrotham Park as foreman of the flowers and conservatory and then the forcing department. Wrotham Park, a Palladian Mansion set in the heart of a 2,500 acre estate located just 17 miles from Hyde Park Corner, was designed by Isaac Ware in 1754 and built by Admiral John Byng, the fourth son of Admiral Sir George Byng. It is doubtful whether the Admiral ever lived at Wrotham. Following the failure of his inadequately equipped expedition to relieve Minorca from the French, the Government sought a scapegoat to assuage the public outcry. He was tried by Court Martial which acquitted him of cowardice and disaffection but finding that he had made an error of judgment convicted him of negligence for which there was a mandatory death sentence under the Twelfth Article of War. Although he was recommended for mercy he was executed in 1757. thus providing the occasion for Voltaire's famous quip "In this country it pays well, from time to time, to kill an Admiral to encourage the others".
