Our work

Addressing our histories of colonialism and historic slavery 

Trengwainton Garden was created by Sir Rose Price (not related to the Bolitho family who later acquired Trengwainton). Price had inherited sugar plantations on the island of Jamaica and as such became directly involved in slavery. The wealth he created from these plantations funded his estate in Cornwall. Learn more about what we’re doing to be more inclusive in our work and acknowledge the impact and legacies of colonialism and slavery.

Sir Rose Price, Trengwainton and Jamaica 

Before Trengwainton came into the ownership of the Bolitho family in 1867, it was owned by Rose Price, a Cornish magistrate and descendant of a Cornish-Jamaican plantation-owning family. Learn more about the early history of Trengwainton and the owner responsible for its transformation from a modest farmhouse to a landed estate.
