The Dolman family's connection with the author of this collection of family histories is Florence Dolman, who was Alice (Kirk-Owen) Maitland's maternal grandmother. Florence was born in Wolverhampton, England, but in 1911 she emigrated to Alberta, Canada, with her mother and sister, where she married Frederick Kirk-Owen. It may be that her brother, Reginald was already there farming.
The Dolmans were a family of basketmakers in Alrewas, about 5 miles NE of Lichfield, Staffordshire, England. They appear in the area in the late 17thC and remain in the area to this day. They married into a number of local families, including the Waits of Yoxall and Trittlebanks of Alrewas. There are many well preserved gravestones in Alrewas church yard featuring this family. Some members moved to Burton-on-Trent with increasing industrialisation.
Florence Dolman's mother was Alice Tate from Sussex: her family is
described on a separate file, Tates
There are a number of Dolman families round the country: one was at Shaw House, now in Newbury. There was a Dolman connection with the King family around Swallowfield – probably this branch. There is no indication that they had any connection with our Dolmans of Lichfield.
This derivation of the Dolman family genealogy was started with the Entries in a traditional family bible as follows:

Parents: Enoch & Alice Ada (Tate) Dolman
Married: Frederic Kirk Owen Owen Pages (no trace on St C Indexes – probably in Canada).
DiedFam: 19/6/1968, Vancouver, Canada.
Ref Elizabeth Kirk-Owen (nee Chadwick), Florence's daughter-in-law. Rex's mother was a Dolman from the Wolverhampton area, possibly Glenthorne, Penn, Wolverhampton. This is born out by birth records and the family bible which shows his mother's, Florence, mother to have been born Alice Ada Tate.
Frederick and Florence moved to Canada before the Great War to a farm bought by Alice Ada near Calgary after the death of Enoch, Florence's father. It is probable that they met in Canada or possibly in England: no trace of their marriage was found between 1912-14 on St C Indexes).
Florence was injured in a riding accident and walked with a severe limp for the rest of her life: EAK-O describes her as a "loving person". Photographs exist of her at Rex's wedding in 1947 and again in 1964.
Florence and Frederick Kirk-Owen probably met in Calgary, where it seems probable that Florence and her mother had emigrated to in 1911.

From the census and other information, he followed his father as a butcher in Burton-on-Trent, before setting up on his own in Wolverhampton. As a foreign meat salesman in the 1890's, he took advantage of the advent of refrigerated ships bringing meat from abroad (probably the Americas).
According to EAC, he was master of the Albrighton Hunt although this is not born out by Bailey's directory of Hunts.
Of his children, Emily married Reginald Montgomery, whose
brother became Viscount Montgomery of Alamein (this does not tie in with
Montgomery family history); Emily lived near Belfast. Ethel Dolman married.
Reginald, the brother, went to Canada, served in the army during the first war, and died about 1940’s.
Alice, Florence and Emily went to Canada in 1911, where Alice died in 1944. Maybe following Reginald?

Neither he nor Phoebe appear to have left a will.
He started off as a grocer in Alrewas, a village between Burton-on-Trent and Lichfield, where his family had lived for several generations.
Between 1861 & 71, he was a clerk in a Brewery in Burton-on-Trent, a big brewing centre. By 1881, he was back in the meat trade, by 1891 as a butcher and game dealer in Burton, living for over 30 years (1871-1901) in Stapenhill. His son, Enoch joined him in the butchery business and later moved to Wolverhampton. He may have been a Methodist: he was married in a Methodist Church. His wife's family may have been the leaders in this choice: Methodism was popular in the Black Country among the industrial workers.

He and many of his contemporary family were basketmakers, Moses from at least as early as 1825 until 1861, although he may have been a lock keeper for a short period about 1859. This was a time when canals were being built round this area.
The family had been in Alrewas for about 100 years. They continued in the basket trade: a John Dolman, basketmaker of Alrewas was the heir to his wife's will in 1911.
Alrewas is a small village about 5-6 miles northeast of Lichfield in Staffordshire, just west of the Burton on Trent road. It contains many houses dating from the early part of the 19thC. Fradley, also connected with this family, is a mile or two west of Alrewas.
Alrewas churchyard contains many well preserved stones, made from a fine hard wearing stone, similar to slate. They are now set out around the wall. They reveal many family connections.

Dear Mr Maitland, I have been reading with interest you site especially all the family history on the Dolman family. My great-great grandmother was Elizabeth Dolman who was the daughter of Moses Dolman and Hannah Wait. She married a John Bramall also from Alrewas and their son also John married Emma Bengree from Wolverhampton and the family finally ended up living in Aston in the centre of Birmingham. Although I have now moved with my husband, son, his wife and two grandsons to the South of France, we live in a small hamlet just south of Carcassonne and Limoux close to the foothills of the Pyrenees. I have a photograph of Elizabeth Dolman and her husband taken around 1880 I think. Any further information you may have that you would be willing to share with me I should be very grateful.
Yours, Valerie Cook
Thank you so much for responding to my email. I hope you had a good Christmas. John and Emma moved from Wolverhampton to Aston, Birmingham and had several children one being Ethel my grandmother (both Emma and John died very young, Emma at 48 and John two years after) who married John Ward from Grantham who was a brewer at Ansells Brewery. Strangely enough my Mother who is now in her eighties recently moved to within 5 miles of Alrewas without knowing of the connection.

There is no direct evidence of John Coley's parents and birthday. The three alternatives below are the likely candidates in the IGI which fit his age and birthplace. From the slim evidence of daughter Phebe's name, the best bet for his parents would be Samuel & Phebe Coley.
He evidently started work at the Union Mill in Wolverhampton, rising to become an Iron Foundry Manager by 1861; Wolverhampton was then a developing part of the Black Country, England's industrial heart.
Union Mill, Wolverhampton:
....Benjamin Mander’s interests were certainly diverse, perhaps too much so for his own profit as a businessman (we shall see that he died leaving a meagre estate). His promotion in 1812 of the Wolverhampton Flour and Bread Company, which built and operated the Union Mill, together with the Union Poor House (a fine building to a radial plan which stood on the Cleveland Road) as a philanthropic adjunct, again led to notoriety.
The company was modelled on the more famous Birmingham Union Mill, largely as a charitable venture to provide cheap bread to the poor in the period of economic difficulty and social agitation which followed the Napoleonic wars. In 1812 the labourers were suffering from a depression in agricultural prices and trade in a brutal climate of protection which favoured the landowners, and there was deep unrest, leading to rioting in the streets. Against a background of growing population and 35 years of war, piracy, and blockade, the price of bread had inexorably risen. There were years of dearth, as when in 1795 Pitt had taxed the use of flour in hair-powder, and then saw fit to forbid its use altogether. Since Benjamin had become a master baker, bread had gone from being the staple diet of the poor to being in some cases a luxury item. The Union Mill was founded on a sense of mission and high principle, intended to keep the price of good quality bread cheap.
The Union Mill project was launched when the promoters offered mass subscriptions to the public one market day in August 1812. The idea caught on immediately, and the public welcomed it by subscribing.

There are no suitable John Wait’s in the area – it is possible that he was an immigrant from elsewhere in the country.
Died: 2/9/1840 aged 81. a sawyer of Woodmill, decay of nature, informant Martin Wait, son, of Woodmill.(DC).
No will listed in Lichfield.
The early family all resided around the hamlet of Woodmill and the village of Yoxall. Timber played a big part in their lives as many were employed in their own timber yard business. This is probably where the cabinetmaking came from.
See below for John Wait, a possible parent.
Married: Sarah (age 73 in 1841 @ Woodmill, Yoxall, thus b abt 1768). She died 16/1/1850.
A suggestion had been made that she may have been Sarah Cantrell.
If so, they married at 13/1/1782 at St Peter’s Yoxall.
He was probably the owner/operator of a sawmill (wood), which was continued by his sons and grandson(s).

From David Hankey, 4/2013:
Another interesting character was Joseph Wait 1793-1871, brother of my William. He was the Founder of Woodmill Methodist Chapel which still stands to this day. Joseph is buried there along with his first Elizabeth, nee Rogers, and their son also named Joseph.
Joseph senior was married three
times altogether. Firstly to Elizabeth Rogers in 1817. She died in 1843 and
Joseph went onto marry Ann Tibly in 1846. She, too, died in 1854 and Joseph
remarried for a third time to Mary Anne Poole in 1860 aged 67. I can only
assume from this he either couldn't cook or didn't like living on his own!! In
all of this I can only find two children for him, both by his first wife.

From: Chris Wait
I am writing to ask if you have any more details relating to the Wait's connected with your family.
I am particularly interested in establishing if my 4 X Great grandfather Edward Wait may possibly be a son missing from your list of children born to John Wait and his wife Sarah, whom you state may have died before 1841.
My 4 X Great Grandfather Edward Wait was born Abt. 1783 in Yoxall and I believe married a Sarah Tunks on the 10 NOV 1806 at Yoxall. He appears in both the 1841 & 1851 Census (I don't have access to 1861, 71 and 1891) and his profession is given both times as a Sawyer.
You can see how my 4 X Great Grandfather would fit in, possibly being their first born, being born in 1783 or 1784.
There certainly seems good reason to believe this to be the case, as you state that John Wait was probably the owner/operator of a sawmill (wood), which was continued by his sons and grandson(s). My Edward and his children and Grandchild were Sawyers which clearly has links to the sawmill.
Edward is the earliest Wait I have in my family tree so it would be great to be able to establish if John and Sarah were his parents and that our families are connected in some way.
Please find below a list of Edwards descendants which directly come down to me:
EDWARD WAIT(b-1783) married Sarah.
issue: HANNAH WAIT(b-1814)gave birth outside marriage
JOHN COOPER WAIT(b-1835) married RACHEL DEE
1861 Census, The Principal St, Alrewas:
John Cooper Wait (25, Hd, Timber Sawyer, Alrewas), Harriett (wf, 24, Manchester), Ednor (dau, 2, Alrewas), Harriett Elizabeth (dau, 1 mth, Alrewas).
EDWARD WAIT(b-1872) married ROSE HANNAH THOMPSON
ALBERT EDWARD WAIT(b-1898) married CATHERINE GRAYSON
ALBERT EDWARD WAIT(b-1925) married EILEEN MARY TAYLOR
CHRISTOPHER WAIT ((ME!))(b-1963) married PENNY NEWMAN
SAMANTHA MAY WAIT(b-1999)
DANIEL EDWARD WAIT(b-1999)(TWINS)
EDWARD WAIT though born in Yoxall was living in Alrewas during the 1841 and 1851 census. Hannah may have been born in Yoxall, her son John Cooper Wait was born in Burton upon Trent, where the family largely remained on and off until Albert Edward Wait(b 1898)moved down to Leicester around 1920.
(A3M: Edward Wait a sawyer in 1851).
From then on the family mainly lived in Leicester, before I moved out to Melton Mowbray with my parents in 1977, where I still live today.
In 1841 Census.

I know I’ve not been in touch for a while but I’ve just had this query posted to me from Genes Reunited and it’s a question I cannot answer. Can you assist? It’s from a Christopher Wait. If it’s easier and you are happy for me to do so, I could pass on your e-mail address directly to him, but I would never do this without your permission. Besides, you might not be able to help either!
Having traced my Family tree back to Edward Wait born in Yoxall (c.1784) I it a dead end as the Parish registers covering this period were missing.
Recently I came across a record for a Mary Wait marrying a Michael Upton in Yoxall on the same date at the same church as my Edward Wait married Sarah Tunks/Tonks. I was able to find her birth in 1797 and her parents name as John Wait & Sarah Cantrell)
I know it's a long shot but it occurred to me that as they married at the same venue on the same date they could possibly be brother & sister, thus giving me the possible parents of my Edward.
I am David Hankey, son of Mary Gwendoline Wait who married Eric Hankey.
I have traced my Wait line back to my 6th great grandfather, John Wait b abt 1707.
My 4th great grandfather, John Wait b 1759 married Sarah Cantrell and between them had 13 children 2 of whom married into the Dolman family.
Hannah b 1795 married Moses Dolman b 1792 in 1817 and her brother Francis b 1800 married Elizabeth Dolman in 1820.
Both marriages took place at All Saints Church, Alrewas.
The problem I am having is tracing the parents of Elizabeth Dolman. I understand Moses's parents were Joseph Moses & Mary Monks.

Possibly from Lesley Gorrell, 2/2006:
26 Oct 2007
My cousin's great great grandmother is Elizabeth CARTHY, who married Thomas DOLMAN as his second wife.
Elizabeth had two daughters bearing the surname CARTHY: Mary Ann and Sarah (my cousin's great grandmother).
Elizabeth was the daughter of Charles CARTHY and Hannah DOLMAN. Hannah and Thomas were first cousins once removed.
I have attached details and I would be very pleased to have any light you can throw on this matter. Whilst I have access to many records through the two societies here in Melbourne, distance is still a problem for researchers in Australia.
As you can see, I have not got back any further in the DOLMAN area as it has been too confusing to be accurate but I was fairly confident that I had the correct information until I came across people expressing equal certainty about MILLER.
Best wishes, Lesley GORRELL.

Thomas died 28 JUL 1876 in Fox Lane, Alrewas, 78 years.
He married twice. He married Mary Green in All Saints, Alrewas, Staffordshire, 1821. He married Elizabeth Carthy in All Saints, Alrewas, Staffordshire, 17 NOV 1845.

Sarah was quite a character, having had three illegitimate sons by another man before she wed my great-great-grandfather John Dolman in 1824. It turned out, however, that she wasn't as free and easy with her favours as her younger sister Elizabeth, whom John Dolman bravely 'made an honest woman' of Sarah in November 1824. Their eldest son Edwin was baptised on 30 May 1825, so she was obviously pregnant with him at the time. She then proceeded to produce eight more legitimate offspring by John, including my great-grandfather Charles (bapt. 19 Apr 1835)

As for the Dolmans, they do seems to have been full of characters. My grandmother remembers her father (Jeffrey William) was injured during the war and came back with a bad arm (where a bullet went in at the wrist and out at the shoulder) and a limp (he had 1 leg longer than the other and used to pack his shoes with paper). Also, if you look at the whole census for Alrewas in the 1880s or so it seems that half the families in the village have an illegitimate Dolman child living with them so they do seem like the village bad boys.

Description: The village of Alrewas could perhaps be described as a village of waterways. It is situated approximately five miles north- east of Lichfield, south of the River Trent and west of the mouth of the River Tame, while at Fradley Junction the Trent and Mersey and the Coventry and Fazeley Canals converge. The name may mean ‘hill by the water’, ‘alder swamp’ or ‘alluvial land with alders’.
At the time of the Domesday Survey in 1086, the manor was held by the King and consisted of three hides, in acreage some 360 acres. 24 acres of meadow land are recorded, later called Essington Meadow. This meadow would have been common to the use of all the inhabitants in the village. There was a large fishery, unsurprisingly given the physical location of Alrewas next to two rivers and this produced 1,500 eels. Woodland, managed for the purpose of producing timber and fuel amounted to one league by half a league The male population was recorded as 28 of which 20 were farmers, or villeins, one a serf and six were poor peasants called bordars. There was also a priest.
Before and during the Middle Ages the cultivation of the land was carried out using the open field system. Farming activity was supervised and regulated through the manor court and there is an excellent series of mediaeval court rolls for Alrewas in the Staffordshire Record Office, documenting this process of agricultural regulation. Alrewas provides one the of best examples of the open field system in Staffordshire, which largely continued there right up until the beginning of the 19th century, when the surviving parts of the open fields were enclosed.
In 1666, 80 households were assessed for the Hearth Tax in Alrewas, 20 in Orgreave and 37 in Fradley. The largest house at the time was the manor house with 11 hearths. This belonged to John Turton, who owned the manor at that time. Later the Turtons were to move to Orgreave Hall which was probably built about 1668. They sold the manor of Alrewas to the Anson family, later Earls of Lichfield, in 1752. It remained the property of the Earls of Lichfield until 1953 when the estate was sold off.
A church was recorded by the year 822 when Alrewas was chosen to be a prebend by Bishop Aethelwald. The present church, dedicated to All Saints, has Norman features and has undergone a number of architectural changes over the centuries. The church has a ring of eight bells, all of which were recast in the 20th century. However the earliest reference to the Alrewas bells is recorded in the parish register in 1585, with a note that ‘the seconde bell and the greatest bell weare cast at Nottingham by Henry Oldfield, bellfounder’. By the 19th century, there were also Wesleyan and Primitive Methodist chapels in the village.
The building of the canals had an important influence on Alrewas. It contributed to the development of a new settlement at Fradley Junction, providing housing and facilities for those working on canal and barge maintenance and in related trades. Along the canal banks, warehouses and new industries grew up, such as the Midland Counties Cement and Plaster Works. In particular a new cotton spinning mill was built in 1784 to take advantage of the new canal network. It has operated since then with varying degrees of success and producing many different types of product, including tape, flour and cattle food.
The traditional industry in Alrewas, however, as befitting its location was basket making with the willow being supplied from osier beds in the parish.
Description: The village of Yoxall is situated north east of the city of Lichfield. The river Swarbourne flows through it to join the Trent and it is thought that the original Anglo-Saxon settlement may have been on the river’s west bank. As a result of the river there are two bridges, Trent Bridge and Hall Bridge.
The first part of the name, Yoxall, is thought to derive from the Old English, geoc, which has more than one meaning including ‘a measure of land’ or the ‘yoke of oxen’. The second part of the name may derive from ‘halh’ meaning a small valley or hollow. The generally accepted meaning of the name is ‘a secluded piece of land large enough to be ploughed by one team of oxen’.
In the Domesday Book Yoxall is recorded as Locheshale, part of the lands of the Bishop of Lichfield and held by Rauen and Alwin as tenants. There was enough land for four ploughs to till. Many of the buildings in the main street with modern fronts have much older structures behind them. In particular Reeve End Cottage has the remains of a fourteenth century timber-framed house which had an aisled hall, said to be the only surviving one in Staffordshire. This feature suggests an original owner of some wealth and status at the time of its building.
In 1532-1533, 35 families were recorded in Yoxall, 12 at Bond End, 18 at Snails End, 16 at Woodhouses , 8 at Morrey and 11 at Hoar Cross, making a total of 550 persons in 100 families. By the time of the Hearth Tax assessment of 1666, 149 households were recorded in the constablewick of Yoxall. This would have included all the hamlets already mentioned. In 1689 Celia Fiennes travelled through Yoxall but sadly gave no description of what she saw.
Yoxall’s parish church is dedicated to St Peter. It was largely rebuilt between 1865 and 1868 by the architect Woodyer. A Roman Catholic church is situated at Wood Lane, originally built in 1795 and enlarged in 1854. The original building was disguised so that it did not look like a church at a time when Roman catholics were still subject to some persecution. The village also had two Primitive Methodist chapels.
Yoxall remained a farming community until well into the 20th century with a number of agriculturally related trades located in the village. A Victorian village shop which was formerly situated in Hadley Street was removed in its entirety and re-assembled at the County Museum at Shugborough. A cottage hospital, the Meynell Ingram Cottage Hospital, endowed by the Meynell-Ingram family, was built in 1873.
Notable connections with the village are the family of Mary Arden, the mother of Shakespeare, who purchased Longcroft Hall, now demolished, in 1576. Yoxall Lodge was the home of Rev Thomas Gisborne, a friend of William Wilberforce who frequently visited the village to meet with his friend. George Walton, the father of Izaak Walton the angler, also lived at Yoxall.
As with many villages in Staffordshire, Yoxall has a strange phenomenon. Horses refuse to pass the spot where a skeleton of a boy was discovered. He was proved to be the apprentice of the local blacksmith. The boy committed suicide because he received such ill treatment at the hands of his master and was buried in unconsecrated ground.
For those who want to know more, there is an excellent study of the early modern social history of Yoxall in A social history of Yoxall in the 16th and 17th centuries, edited by Denis Stuart. This can be consulted in the William Salt Library in Stafford or at Lichfield Library.
For more information about Yoxall, see the Victoria County History Staffordshire, Volume X pp 281-306.

This is assumed to be the correct family of Mary Monk, the wife of Joseph Dolman: the data is from the Ancestral file and shows Mary Monk marrying a "Hunter". However, from the IGI and pariish records, she seems a likely candidate: Longdon by Lichfield is only about 5 miles from Alrewas.

There is much conjecture as to the origin of the name "Dolman". The name is fairly common on the continent but there are also many records of the name predating the 16th Century in England.
This current research has shown rather an abundance of the name in the country, especially in the north midlands. Burton on Trent, Stafford and Arle was consistently crop up in the GRO indexes for the 19th century.
Some reference books on surname meanings refer to the similarity between "dull" and the "dol" of Dolman but fail to reach consensus. Spelling variations include Dollman, Doleman or even Dolan. The descendants of one branch of the family in Maiden Bradley even change from Dolman to Doman and back again during successive generations and the literary standards of the times must be borne in mind when undertaking research.
The dictionary definition "a hussar's jacket" and "dolmen sleeves" may indicate a tailoring background but nothing of this nature has been discovered apart from the Dolmans of Newbury referred to later. Again, no connection here has yet been discovered.
Two major namesakes have been found recorded. One is the Reverend Dolman and his family from Pocklington Yorkshire. An extensive history may be found in genealogical biographies. No connection has been established.
Ref Terry O'Brian 4/2010:
Timothy Dolman of Maiden Bradley (MB), son of William Dolman & Hannah Gifford, baptised 13 Mar 1748 MB, married Mary Coleman MB 13 May 1775 - had 6 children (2 in baptised MB, 4 baptised in Longbridge Deverill). The family, as Doman's, relocated to Longbridge Deverill, then Hill Deverill, and later some relocated to South Australia.

Shaw House was completed in 1581 by Thomas Dolman, a member of a successful family who had made their fortune from the cloth industry in Newbury. This impressive manor has witnessed centuries of political and social tension and evidence exists for its contribution to some of the most notable events in English history.
Shaw House Watercolour The striking nature of its architecture established the Dolmans' position as pre-eminent in Newbury and the surrounding area. The Dolman family have been significant to the development of Shaw House; in all it was passed down through six generations between 1554 and 1728. During this time visitors to Shaw included several kings and queens on their royal progresses around the country as well as courtiers travelling from London to Bath. It then became the setting for part of the Second Battle of Newbury in 1644, acting as headquarters for Charles I, while hand-to-hand battle was fought in the gardens between his army and that of the Parliamentarians. Over the succeeding centuries Shaw House has been the country retreat of a Duke, the residence of an 18th century investor who had interests in the West Indian sugar plantations, and the home of a large Victorian family. At the outbreak of World War II the house was requisitioned by the War Office as accommodation for troops. Following the bombing of Newbury Senior Council schools in 1943 it took on its final role as a school for many generations of Newbury children. Having stood empty for over a decade a major restoration programme has rescued it from near dereliction and left it refurbished for the benefit of the community.
The Dolman family is traditionally considered to have come from Pocklington in Yorkshire
At All Saints Church, Pocklington there is a tomb to Thomas Dolman (d.1589) with his kneeling family. This is supported by the similarity of the Arms granted to Thomas Dolman II in 1587 to those of the Dolmans in Yorkshire as both feature wheatsheafs.
By 1536 Thomas Dolman appears to have inherited from his father since it is his name that appears on a document relating to a general statute on cloth measures. In this document Thomas is listed as a manufacturer of broadcloths (a heavy woollen cloth woven on a broadloom) and kerseys, (a heavy woollen cloth woven on one-man looms), which suggests that by this time the Dolmans had their own factory. Despite the importance of Newbury in the manufacture of cloth, Thomas Dolman understood the need to control the production of wool for the cloth in order to maximise his profit. It is no doubt that it was with this in mind that he purchased the Manor of Stanton in Gloucestershire, which at this time was one of the major areas for the production of fleeces. Dolman further advanced his ambitions by marrying Elizabeth Harrison of Southampton whose father owned ships involved in the transport of cloth to the continent.
The Dissolution of the Monasteries under Henry VIII lead to considerable amounts of land being available for aspiring families to improve their position. The Manor of Shaw had belonged to Winchester College until 1543 when it was exchanged for land with the Crown. It was not until 1554 that Thomas Dolman was able to buy the Manor of Shaw from Lord Clynton and Henry Herdson for £600. In 1557 Dolman purchased the remaining land and the mills on the manor which had remained in the ownership of the Crown, for the sum of £323.13s.4d. with:
"two water mills under one roof called the corn mill ....the stretch of river from the place called the Spout, to the footbridge and the fishing thereof."
At this time, when Thomas Dolman began to acquire land and property around Newbury, the cloth industry was declining as a result of an increase in cloth manufacture on the continent. Dolman's move from manufacturing to income derived from land and property was perfectly timed. He had made vast sums of money and like so many of his contemporaries he was ambitious to move up the social ladder. The acquisition of the Manor of Shaw enabled the Dolman family to gain a foothold amongst the landed gentry. Within fifty years of the purchase of Shaw their wealth and education projected them into the Court's innermost circles, by the early 17th century Shaw House was sufficiently impressive for the King and Queen to stay there on Royal Progresses.
Thomas Dolman II (1542-1622)
Thomas Dolman was educated at Oxford. He was granted Arms in 1587 and appointed Sheriff of Berkshire the following year. In 1591 he married Margaret Forster of Aldermaston, a member of an established gentry family. In 1598 Dolman became a Justice of the Peace. His first wife died in 1602 and Dolman married Ann Braye "a gentilwoman of London, daughter of Owen Braye deceased", the deed of the marriage settlement is dated December 1602. The Inventory of Thomas Dolman's property, made after his death in 1622, provides an invaluable guide to the original disposition of rooms at Shaw and gives an insight into the manner and quality of life in the house at this time.
Humphrey Dolman (1593-1666)
Humphrey Dolman is not associated with any changes to Shaw House and therefore it is likely that he continued to use the rooms as they were described in the 1622 Inventory. Like his father he was educated at Oxford and Lincoln's Inn. He married Anne Quarles, the daughter and heir to John Quarles a Merchant Adventurer of London, and their eldest child Thomas was born in 1621. In 1635 Humphrey Dolman was appointed Sheriff of Berkshire.
Humphrey's place in the history of Shaw is associated with the Second Battle of Newbury on 27th October 1644, when Shaw House was used as the King's headquarters. Donnington Castle, to the north west of Shaw, was a Royalist stronghold and Shaw House became an integral part of the defensive position that the King established to the north of Newbury. The river and marshy ground to the south of Shaw together with the raised terraces of the garden provided an obvious place for the King to have his headquarters.
Humphrey Dolman was nominated a member of the parliamentary committee of Berkshire in 1647, although his sons' estates were listed as sequestrated by the Parliamentary Commissioners. Throughout the remaining years of Humphrey's life there are periods when he alone is the signatory of official documents, and at other periods both Humphrey, and his son Thomas, sign. After the Restoration in 1660 Humphrey's name no longer appears. This may indicate that either Humphrey was ill and no longer capable of running the estates, or perhaps this transfer of control was in response to political events. In 1664, two years before Humphrey's death, it was Thomas who signed the document authenticating the Dolman pedigree when Elias Ashmole held his visitation.
Humphrey's nuncupative will was dictated in the presence of his doctors as he was "lying in his bed in an upper room (being his usual lodging and chamber) of his dwelling house in Shaw" on 13th May 1666. He simply left "all his estate whatsoever both within door and without" to his son Thomas.
Sir Thomas Dolman III (1621-1697)
Thomas, like most of his family, was educated at Oxford and Lincoln's Inn. He married Margaret (or Margery) Hobday, the daughter and heir of John Hobday of Thornton, Warwickshire in 1651. She died in 1686. In February 1661 Thomas Dolman was knighted as a reward for his support for the Crown during the Civil War. In the same year he became MP for Reading and he also was appointed as a JP.
From 1677 to 1685 he was Clerk to the Privy Council - a manuscript in the Inner Temple records that "Sir Edward Waller is dead & succeeded in the Council Chamber by Sir Thomas Dolman". Sir Thomas was opposed to the Catholic policies of James II and was removed from the bench in 1687.
Sir Thomas's eldest son Humphrey died in 1687 aged 35. The parish register for St Mary's Church, Shaw records his burial on 3rd July as Sir Humphrey Dolman, son of Sir Thomas Dolman. Little is known about Sir Humphrey, either the reason for his knighthood or his role in the history of Shaw.
Sir Thomas Dolman IV (1657-1711)
The death of his older brother in 1687 meant that Thomas Dolman became heir to Shaw at the age of thirty. After studying at Oxford he became an attorney at Lincoln's Inn in 1683. He married Dorothy Bell (daughter of John Harrison of Scarborough), the widow of Henry Bell the Windsor Herald but they did not have any children; she died in 1708. He became MP for Reading in 1705 and the fact that he had a house in Ayre Street, Westminster suggests that he took an active part in the government of the country. He also had a country house in Epping, Essex. He was a J.P. and Deputy Lieutenant of Berkshire, as well as being a colonel of the Berkshire Militia.
On October 27th & 28th 1703 Thomas and his wife entertained Queen Anne at Shaw on her return journey from Bath to London. Dolman was knighted at St James's on November 7th following this visit.
Sir Thomas died without issue and all of his six siblings died before him. The estate consequently passed to the surviving children of his brother Dr Lewis Dolman. Sir Thomas carefully listed the line of succession, allowing for Shaw to pass to his cousin Philip Henshaw if none of the Dolman heirs had children. In the event it was his niece Dorothy who inherited the estate but encumbered with debts she entered into sale negotiations with the Duke of Chandos in 1720.
James Brydges, 1st Duke of Chandos (1674-1744)
James Brydges was descended from a long-established aristocratic family, his father being the 8th Lord Chandos of Sudeley, and the family had estates in Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Radnorshire and Worcestershire. Educated at New College, Oxford, James Brydges' career moved swiftly and in 1698 he became MP for Hereford. His ambition to obtain a lucrative office of national importance was fulfilled in 1707 when he was appointed Paymaster General of the Queen's forces abroad. Officially responsible for the finances of Marlborough's campaigns in the Spanish Wars of succession (1702-1713), he handled huge sums of money that he managed to his own advantage and which made him enormously wealthy. There were a number of official posts available in government at this period where it was acknowledged that the shrewd use of this money for personal gain was considered an acceptable perk of the office. James Brydges however took this to new limits and he is estimated to have made between £600,000 and £700,000 during the period he held this position. In 1714 he not only succeeded his father as 9th Lord Chandos but was also created Viscount Wilton & Earl of Carnarvon in the honours at the accession of George I. He was elevated to Marquis of Carnarvon & Duke of Chandos in 1719.
(the Brydges family owned Boultibrooke House outside Presteigne, Radnorshire, two owners of which were friends of Antony Maitland from 1980 onwards).
