Black mulberry near to the house, branches on props. The house was built between 1713 and 1717 in the corner of an orchard belonging to the Downes family. The tree was apparently there iwhen Hogarth lived there from 1749 to his death in 1764. The tree was probably part of the 1670's orchard. The 1873 OS map shows the house and garden surrounded by what look like orchards, or at least farmland.
