‘Quinta Waddington’ in Exploring the Hispanic-Anglosphere

A panel dedicated to the ‘Quinta Waddington‘ in our current online exhibition inaugurates a new series of entries aimed at highlighting ‘Key Locations’ in the Hispanic-Anglosphere during the late eighteenth to the early twentieth centuries.

Located in Valparaiso, Chile, this country residence was named in honour of Joshua Waddington (1792 – 1876), a native of Headingley, Yorkshire (England) who made fortune after arriving in Chile in 1817 and did much to promote Protestantism in that part of the world, albeit being himself a Catholic.
