Percy Scawen Wyndham (1835-1911) married Madeline Caroline Frances Eden Campbell (1835-1920) in 1860 and purchased part of the Seymour Estate at East Knowle near Salisbury. They commissioned Philip Webb to design their country house, Clouds, which became a social center of the late 19th century for academics and artists. The Wyndhams moved into Clouds in 1885 and before long were patronising many of the important artists of the day. Clouds also became one of the meeting places for The Souls, an aesthetically minded group of aristocrats who formed a society in the decades leading up to the First World War. (See C. Dakers, Clouds, The Biography of a Country House, Yale, 1993).
