With a docket-title. The house was built in 1752--53 for John Manners, 3rd Duke of Rutland, perhaps by John Vardy. 'For all the auctioneer's blandishments, Rutland House failed to attract a buyer. Empty and unwanted, the neglected mansion survived until January 1836 when it was pulled down for redevelopment, Robins being called in again to sell the materials'. See Survey of London, XLV, 2000, pp. 143--44.
