My Great (X3) Grandad Was Olivia Sparrows Footman

A Memory of Brampton

This memory relates to the late 1830s and early 1840s. My great x3 grandfather, William Makepeace, was Olivia Bernard Sparrow's Footman. A number of his children, including my great-great-grandmother Louisa Makepeace who became Louisa Hornshaw, were born at Brampton Park, as also was my great x3 Aunt Lucy who died in Bradford, West Yorkshire and used to live in her older years at 7 Athol Road, Manningham, Bradford. They were actually born in the big house, Brampton Park, that burned down in 1907.
