- After Francis William Caulfeild, a most attractive English gentleman in the old tradition.
- In 1899, won by the beauty of the wild flowers, woods, and beaches of the area, he bought the land between Cypress Creek and Point Atkinson. Himself a lover of beautiful English villages, he sought to create one here.
- Rejecting the uncompromising grid universally imposed on North American settlements, he laid out winding streets that followed the natural contours of the wooded slopes.
- He made a public park out of the strip of land on the waterfront. Caulfeild died in 1934, aged ninety.
