Paultons Square is a pleasant Georgian square built in the 1830s on the site of an old market garden. The land was previously owned by Sir Thomas More and Sir John Danvers and this represents the furthest west of the squares leading off the King’s Road. This interesting lawned garden, enclosed by railings, features unusual plants, mature plane trees and a central play area. It was redesigned to celebrate the millennium. The square was named after Paultons in Hampshire, the country seat of George Stanley, the son-in-law of Sir Hans Sloane. Sir Hans was Lord of the Manor of Chelsea in the 18th century and gave his name to Sloane Square, Sloane Street, Sloane Avenue and various places starting with ‘Hans’.
