(London: Athlone Press, 1975), p. 1008 NOTES: The Old Royal Naval College was built originally as the Royal Hospital for Seamen in 1696-1716. Sir Christopher Wren was responsible for its design (incorporating the earlier King Charles block by John Webb of 1667) and general layout. He was succeeded by Hawksmoor, who designed some of the blocks, ie the King William block. The Queen's House, commissioned in 1616 by Queen Anne, wife of James I, was designed ina Palladian style by Inigo Jones and completed in 1635
