Brunswick Square was one of the gardens flanking the Foundling Hospital (now demolished), a charity set up in 1739 to cater for abandoned children. Work on the square began in 1795 and the gardens were originally laid out and railed in 1799. The grade II-listed square is named after Caroline of Brunswick, the Prince Regent's wife.
Professor Laurie Kaplan will talk about 'Emma Woodhouse and the Children at Brunswick Square', an exploration of the theme of foundlings in Jane Austen's novel Emma, in the Foundling Museum on Saturday 8 June at 11am.
