Fourth Earl of Orford in Richmond Green, Richmond, Surrey - 5 June, 1791, at night

from Letter from Horace Walpole to Mary Berry, 8 June 1791, page 445:

I went to them [French exiles living on Richmond Green] on Sunday evening, but found them gone to Lord Fitzwilliam’s, the next house to Madame de Boufflers’s, to hear his organ; whither I followed them, and returned with them. The Comtesse Émilie played on her harp; then we all united at loto.
