NOTES: Estate:
Fair Oak Park, Hampshire, the seat of James Edward Bradshaw, Esq.
This gentleman traces his descent in a direct line from Sir John de Bradshaw, to whom William the Conqueror extended his protection, allowing him to retain possession of his estate.
In addition to this seat, Mr. Bradshaw also possesses Darcy Lever Hall, Lancashire, built by the Bradshaws in the last century [1700s], though the estate has been possessed by the family since the reign of King Edward IV. This mansion is a handsome brick ediface, and had formerly extensive gardens. The whole district is in a thriving condition, the soil producing coal in abundance, while the Bolton canal affords great facilities to manufacturing and mining enterprise.
