On the death of his father when he was eleven Wyndham succeeded to vast ancestral property including Petworth House in Sussex, and a great art collection.

He bought Old Masters and antique sculpture, as well as commissioning numerous landscapes, subject pictures, and portraits. Most famous as the patron of Turner and a host of British painters and sculptors, Egremont also stood out as an enlightened and philanthropic landowner and an innovative farmer.
