Charles Ernest Henwood 1897-1984, Landscape Architect

Charles became a gardener on large estates in the states. He lived in Canada, both Vancouver and Victoria as well as the states of Washington and California.

Here is a picture of the home of Christopher Lloyd, a renown British landscape architect in Northiam, E. Sussex, England. The picture is a postcard taken by the photographer, Neil Jinkerson. Charles's granddaughter visited this home when on vacation in England. She's following in her grandfather's footsteps as she's very knowledgeable about landscaping and gardening. There's hardly a plant that she doesn't know the proper name and how it should be grown. E. Sussex is on the SE coast of England, next door to West Sussex which is the neighbor of Hampshire, the center of the Henwood family. The estate homes are probably very similar.
