       There is no record of the plan of the garden but it was ^[[(]]laid out in 1804^[[)]] by Helen Coles, wife of Tucker Coles.  This garden became a veritable beauty spot and was surrounded by tree box, crepe myrtle, lilac and  mock oranges, which have now attained to great size.
      ^[[(]][[encased]] The old English yews were planted in 1746 [[/encased]] ^[[)]] according to a record furnished by Louis Chauvennet, the present owner. Their tops have grown until the branches meet, bound together with the fragrant yellow southern jessamine, and the ground beneath is covered with a mat of lily-of-the-valley.  [[encased]] These yews exceptional in size and importance, are certainly as fine as many celebrated ones in England.[[/encased]]
