Excerpt from The Life of Lady Russell
After this the earl retired to his seat at Tichfield, maintaining a determined seclusion from public affairs, and solacing himself in his family, and the improvement of his noble estate. The earl possessed large property else where, parti... cularly in Bloomsbury, London. His residence there gave name to Southampton street, Holborn. On this estate he afterwards built a noble mansion. This was at first called Southampton House; but afterwards, Bedford House, being for many years the town house of the Russell family. In 1800, it was taken down, and on the site and adjoining fields were erected many handsome houses, now forming Russell square, Bedford - square, etc.
