John Nash was born in 1752 in South London. In 1777, he set up his own architectural firm. Business wasn't great and there was some drama with his first wife. In 1784, he moved to Wales for awhile before moving back to London in 1797. By 1806, Nash had come to the attention of Prinny and became the architect to the Surveyor General of Woods, Forests, Parks, and Chases. With this title he worked for the Prince and was given jobs that included Regent's Park, re-landscaping St. James's Park, and remodeling of Buckingham House to create Buckingham Palace.
