My father, Dudley Darrell was born at Bramley Grange 13th November 1909. He was the youngest son of fred and Jennie Darrell who had bought the estate a couple of years prior only to lose the property in 1911 during the recession at that timevand the loss of his diamond mining interests in South Africa, due in part to his opposition to Cecil Rhodes. they moved to Henley on Thames where my father grew up. We have copious correspondence relating to the foreclosure and also photos of the property, we still retain most of the furniture and contents.
