Brand Hall

Roger Minshall of Brand Hall, Norton in Hales dies. In his will he leaves money to his illegitimate daughter.

Owners and occupants of Brand Hall were Grosvenor’s, Cotton’s and later the Davison’s. The Davison’s were really a branch of the Styche family. James Styche inherited property from his step-father and took the name Davison. It was his grandson George Davison (d. 1714) who brought the Brand estate.

In the 1737 Churchwarden’s Account book, S. Davison and Robert Davison are listed amongst the principle inhabitants of Norton in Hales.

1756-57 Alterations to the interior of Brand Hall for Robert Davison. [1]

In Purney Sillitoe’s will 1855, he leaves majority of property, land etc. to Alfred William Griffin, eldest son of his niece Elizabeth Sarah Griffin.
