The mulberry can be found by the street at the former London home of the American born artist James McNeill Whistler at 96 Cheyne Walk. Here Whistler painted the iconic portrait of his mother. The house is part of the original 1674 Lindsey House, which comprised numbers 96-101. and was built on the riverside site of Thomas More's garden. The house was built in 1674 by the third Earl of Lindsey[3] on the riverside site of Thomas More's garden and is thought to be the oldest house in Kensington and Chelsea.[4] It was extensively remodelled in 1750 by Count Zinzendorf for the Moravian community in London.
