Details

Sir Josiah Child (1630–1699) was the seriously successful international East India merchant and entrepreneur who bought the Wanstead estate in 1673. Josiah had eight children including Richard Child who rebuilt Wanstead House in the grandest style in the 1720s. What sort of playthings from the ends of the earth might the Child children have enjoyed?
