 A History of Ranger's House

1670–1700 Before Ranger's House

In the 1670s, and without consent, Andrew Snape, Serjeant Farrier to Charles II, occupies a strip of land between Greenwich Park and Blackheath. By approximately 1688, three houses are built, one of which is on the site of the present day Ranger’s House and was later occupied by Captain Francis Hosier.

1723Ranger’s House is built

By 1723, Francis Hosier, by now a vice-admiral, demolishes the previous house and builds a handsome red-brick villa. The location is perfect for a naval man.  The design has been attributed to John James, clerk of works for the Royal Hospital for Seamen.
