- Admin History: This collection comprises papers relating to the sub-manors of Ewell (Fitznells, or Fennells, Bottolphs, or Batailles, and Roxley) and other properties, mainly in Ewell, acquired by James Gadesden from the family of Thomas Calverley and others. The lands formed the Ewell Castle Estate.
Thomas Calverley had built up the estate from the end of the eighteenth century, and additional property was acquired following the 1801 Inclosure Act. His son, also Thomas, died in 1842 and was succeeded by his nephew, Hector William Bower Monro. He died shortly afterwards and was succeeded by his son who conveyed the estate in 1852 to James Gadesden of Yorkshire whose family held the estate until 1902. The collection also includes papers relating to parts of the Gatton estate, sold separately in 1751 (-/6-7 and -/20/5a).
