During their ownership, the Dobells from time to time sold off part of their lands at Bayham and amongst the purchasers was Samuel Gott, a well known iron master of the day, who was closely connected with the famous Gloucester Furnace which lay just over a mile to the east of the Abbey, within the parish of Lamberhurst. Finally the Dobells disposed of their whole interest to a member of a very prominent ironmaster family named George Brown [of Buckland who had married Anne Dobell in1647], and it was Ambrose Brown who, in 1714, sold it to Sir John Pratt, in the hands of whose descendants it has remained ever since.
2nd Jun 1714
Cooper's Bayham
An Act of Parliament was passed in [2 June] 1714, enabling Ambrose Browne to sell the manor of Begeham, which then passed into the possession of John Pratt, Esq., of the Wilderness, in the county of Kent, sergeant-at-law, and afterwards Chief Justice of the King's Bench, whose son became the first Earl Camden and Lord High Chancellor of England. In this family the property has since remained, the present [1857] owner being grandson to the illustrious Chancellor.
