East Cowes in People's Lives

John Woodbridge: I visited here in 1647 to be appointed chaplain of commissioners for an English treaty.

Victoria, Queen of England: As a young girl, my mother the Duchess of Kent frequently holidayed here at Norris Castle, and I loved this island. After I became queen, I bought Osborne House here in 1845, along with my husband Albert, seeking a peaceful and quiet place to use as a reprieve from the stress and noise of court. It was directly next-door to Norris Castle, where I had stayed as a girl. Together, Albert and I rebuilt Osborne House to better suit our need for space. Over the years, I stayed here often with my husband and my children. We particularly liked to come in May for my birthday, in July and August for Albert's birthday, and for Christmas. I described Osborne House as "cheerful and un-palacelike." After Albert's death, I continued to love Osborne House and to visit regularly. In 1900, I traveled here to spend Christmas on the island, as had become my tradition. I never left, and in January of 1901, I died here at the age of 81.
