    This paper explores two aspects of designed landscapes in the late-eighteenth and early-nineteenth centuries that are often neglected-first, the importance derived from intersecting (auto)biographies of designers and patrons; and second, how they relate to global social, economic and political networks. Sheringham Park, Norfolk, reveals the significance of the relationship between the designer, Humphry Repton, the patron and his wife within their respective (auto)biographies. It is positioned alongside Jane Austen's Mansfield Park (1814), its exact contemporary, to draw out relationships between the principle actors and the wider colonial world. The paper will therefore address questions about the role of designed landscapes in personal and historical narratives, and in particular, their position within the international issue of colonialism.
