Birth: Feb. 25, 1911
Death: Aug. 23, 2004
East Hampton
Suffolk County
New York, USA

Mr. Gardiner called himself "the 16th Lord of the Manor" and saw
himself as a custodian of his family's history on what is said to be
the largest privately owned island in the world. The family was considered the oldest non-indian land owners in N. America.

"The Fords, the du Ponts, the Rockefellers, they are nouveaux riches,"

Mr. Gardiner lived in East Hampton, in an opulent family house with its
own long history, but his heart was rooted in Gardiner's Island, in the
bay off Long Island's south fork. The island's 3,350 acres includes 27
miles of coastline, forests and streams, and buildings dating from the
17th century.

Julia Gardiner Tyler "I grieve my love a belle should be," sighed one of Julia Gardiner's innumerable admirers in 1840; at the age of 20 she was already famous as the "Rose of Long Island." We will miss you Robert.....
