Bernard Bosanquet (1848-1923), philosopher and social theorist. His book 'The Philosophical Theory of the State', published in 1899, is regarded as one of the great achievements of British idealist philosophy. That same year, 1899, Bosanquet and his wife, Helen (see below) moved to Oxshott, where they built a house, Heath Cottage, and a rose-garden. Although Bosanquet became professor of moral philosophy at the University of St Andrews from 1903 to 1907 he retained his Oxshott cottage for summer vacations. They moved to London in 1915 through ill health.
