Hasell's of Bottisham
A genealogy of the HASELL family of Cambridgeshire, England, and beyond. The story of the Hasell family is a rather colourful one. A story of saints and sinners, of wealth and poverty: there's a secret Medieval cult, but on the other hand there're more than a few ordained priests. There's a slave trader, but there's also a missionary. There're the Lords of an elaborate manor (and a nearby castle to boot), but also those who subsisted on parish relief at the same time. Definitely a colourful family and one that has left its traces in the annals of history.

Records of baptisms in the Bottisham parish registrar date back to 1561. Records of marriages and burials date back to later in the 1560's. Earlier church records were lost in a fire. There were four male Hasell's with families in Bottisham in the 1560's and 1570's, as well as at least one female. In addition to those listed below there was also a Johannes Hasell who appears to have had a Bottisham connection. There were two marriages in nearby Cambridge which may be related to this branch of Hasell's: Richard Hasell and Alice Allen, married 1546, and William Hasell and Agnes Gibson, married 1541.


Bottisham, the Village & Parish - Some Background
Bottisham is a village and civil parish in the East Cambridgeshire district of Cambridgeshire, England, about 10km east of Cambridge, halfway to Newmarket.[1,2] According to the 2001 census it had a population of 1,983.[1] In 1894 the civil parish, which covered 5,987 acres, was divided into the parishes of Bottisham in the south and Lode in the north, the latter largely comprising former fenland.[2] The ancient parish, though seldom over 1.5km wide, stretches for almost 10 km between the river Cam on the north-west and the line of the Icknield way, in the south-eastern the borders mostly run somewhat irregularly along ancient furlong boundaries.[2] During the course of the past millennium some twelve different spellings have been in vogue for the area known as Bottisham.[3] Names appearing in various documents include - Bodekesham, Bodichessham, Bodegesham, Bottlesham, Botlesham, Bodkysham, Botkysham, Bottesham, Botesham, Botsham, Botsam and Bottisham.[3] It is most likely that the earliest spelling for the area was that of Bodeke, the name of the Saxon lord, and ham, a village.[3]

Numerous finds over most of the ancient parish, including flints and bronze axes, suggest a human presence at various periods over most of the Stone, Bronze, and Iron Ages.[2] A group of ten or more round barrows, most ploughed down, and one or two containing Bronze Age burials, are scattered over the former Bottisham heath to the south.[2] One barrow on Alington Hill was found in 1876 to contain a 7th-century Anglo-Saxon interment.[2] Traces of a ditched 3rd-century Romano-British settlement have been found west of Alington Hill.[2] Other Roman remains discovered from the 1950s north-west of Lode hamlet, including buildings, pottery, and coins, show settlement close to the end of the Lode.[2]

By the late 13th century the parish contained three hamlets, in addition to the main village.[2] The tofts and crofts of the lost hamlet of Angerhale, possibly existing by 1100 and certainly inhabited by the 1260s, are represented by a line of earthworks visible in the northern part of Bottisham park.[2] The settlement had disappeared by the 16th century.[2] In 1800 the only surviving dwellings where Angerhale may once have stood were two large manorial farmhouses, both shortly removed.[2] Lode and Longmeadow, the two hamlets that survived in the 20th century stood at the fen edge, south of Bottisham Lode.[2] Prosperous men of Lode (Lada) were recorded in the 1160s and from the early 13th century substantial families were named from, and messuages recorded at Lode and Longmeadow.[2] The two hamlets were later called Lode street and Longmeadow street.[2] In 1759 there were 34 landholders at Bottisham village, about 30 at Lode and 5, all smallholders, at Longmeadow.[2] In 1086 the whole parish had 37 peasants and 14 "servi".[2] The population had increased greatly by 1279, when about 140 resident landholders were recorded, and at least 76 messuages and 11 cottages.[2] Numbers fell sharply in 1349: in the 1330s and 1340s 20 or more ale sellers had been needed to supply the villagers, but their number fell to 13 by 1349 and was only 4-8 by the late 1350s.[2] In 1377 392 adults paid the poll tax, but only 67 people were assessed to the subsidy in 1524.[2] By 1563 the parish had 104 households, in the 1670s there were c.300 adults occupying 140-145 dwellings and in 1728 100 families comprised 400 'souls'.[2]

Since at least c.1800 Bottisham village stood mostly along the high street which ran south-east from a small green called in the 20th century Pound Hill, perhaps the 'Cagehill' mentioned in 1528.[2] The early 19th-century village pound still stood a little to its north in 1991.[2] The main street runs south past another green, called by the 1340s the Green Hill, just west of the slight rise where the church stands.[2] Thereafter the street turns a little eastwards and another group of houses stands by an east-west road called by 1450 Newmarket Way.[2] There at the town's 'south end' stood by 1618 one of the village's oldest remaining houses, Bottisham Place, the home in the 16th and 17th centuries of the Hasells, one of Bottisham's wealthiest families.[2] Bottisham has overhanging cottages and the graceful tower of a church which glories in some of the finest 14th century work in the county.[1] The tower and the gaunt chancel with its fine stone seats are 13th century but the nave and aisles and porches are all as the builders left them in the 14th.[1] The south aisle has a stone seat for the priest, a piscina, and in its floor an ancient coffin lid.[1] Above the stately arcades is a clerestory of fluted lancets of rare beauty.[1] Here is the font where the children who saw all this beauty grow were baptised; and there are three old screens of the 14th century, two of oak, and the rarest of stone, with three delicate open arches before the chancel.[1] There is an iron-bound chest of 1790, and some fragments of carved stones, the oldest being a Norman tympanum.[1] A table tomb within the church has the mark of a vanished brass portrait of Elias de Beckingham, who was said to be with one exception the only honest judge in the reign of King Edward I.[1] Only he and one other were acquitted when every judge was charged by the king with bribery.[1]

Bottisham Church, dedicated to the Holy and Undivided Trinity, was built on a ridge some few metres above the adjacent route which ran from the fens to the chalk hills to the east.[4] This important route had existed for centuries before the Norman church was erected.[4] The Romans used the route from the ‘load’ (now known as the Bottisham Lode), to connect with the Roman villas, such as the Alington Hill Villa, and the important cross-country route of the Icknield Way, a few miles to the east.[4] From Medieval times the route was known as the Green Lane and connected the ‘city’ of lode to the ‘town’ of Bottisham.[4]

Bottisham, the Village & Parish - Some Background

1. John Hessil, born before 1470.[1] Died after 1483,[1] Bottisham, Cambridgeshire. Married unknown. Possibly the "John Esswell", burgess, who on 29/9/1474 acquired the lease on a newly built tenement with several shops in the market place for 99 years at an annual rent of 30s.[2] The property lay between St Mary's churchyard and Wellane.[2] Witnesses were Robert Damay, mayor; John Reyson; the said John Esswell; Thomas Roger and John Waryn, bailiffs.[2] On the rear of the parchment is written "Johannis Asshewell, 'modo in tenuria magistri hasell',[2] the latter translates as "'just now held by professor Hasell", suggesting John Esswell may have been John Hasell.

1.1.1.1. John Hasell,[10] born 1525, Bottisham, Cambridgeshire.[1,2,9] John's will was dated 13/9/1572,[1,2,3] he probably died and was buried at Bottisham, Cambridgeshire, around this date. On 25/11/1557 John lent Queen Mary 40 marks paid via Sir John Cotten.[9] Married Agnes,[1,2,3,10], c.1547.[1,9] In 1564 John and Agnes were living at Bottisham Place, as evidence by a wooden carving still found in the house today which bears the initials of John & Agnes, the date of 1564 and a depiction of John and Agnes.[4,5] The significance of the date is uncertain, possibly it refers to the construction of Bottisham Place or at least the start of John and Agnes' occupancy. Agnes died 23/10/1575, Bottisham, Cambridgeshire.[3] Agnes was herself a wealthy woman and had many legacies.[10]

At the south end of Bottisham on the main Cambridge- Newmarket turnpike stands one of Bottisham's oldest remaining houses, Bottisham Place, the home in the 16th and 17th centuries of the Hasell's, one of Bottisham's wealthiest families.[11] About 1670 it had 8 hearths.[11] The property consists of several building periods, including at the south end a residence that is probably of 15th century origin.[12] There is a 16th century extension to the north and it was further enlarged in the 17th century by a parallel passage range and a two bay service wing to North.[12] The principal front to the south was remodelled in the early 19th century.[12] The building has an open hall timber framed cased in gault brick, with a hipped tiled roof.[12] The original three bay plan with a cross passage at the low end of the hall is almost intact, although the bay to the left hand has partly been removed.[12] The house is two storeys,[12] and developed to an L-plan, it is partly brick-faced, partly plastered, over timber-framing.[11] The 16th century extension is also timber framed and plaster rendered and was originally jettied on the side facing High Street.[12] A gabled roof incorporates the 17th century passageway.[12] Inside, the original hall has no features or timber framing exposed, but the 16th century addition has evidence of the jettied wall to the High Street.[12] This wing has one ground floor room lined with early 18th century panelling, a bolection moulded fireplace surround, and a first floor room has mid 16th century panelling, probably reset.[12] This panelling bears the date 1564 and the initials J H, probably for John Hasell (d.1572), who owned the property at that time, along with the carved heads of a man and woman in mid 16th-century costume.[13] There are five small linen fold panels and three panels with the above mentioned carvings in roundels.[12] Another panel has a shield carried by winged putti in a surround of floral ornament.[12] Since at least 1700 Bottisham Place has been the residence of the Paul Family, who remain the residents today. The Paul's were connected with Cambridge University and responsible for some of the bridges built across the River Cam. Bottisham place is opposite the White Swan Inn, the hang-out of Dick Turpin, the famous Highwayman.[13] {The inscription on the panel actually reads IH, however I and J are the same in latin}. Behind Bottisham Place are several service buildings including a granary, wash house, brewhouse, stable and barn of three bays, all dating to the late 1600's to the early 1700's.[12] The main barn is timber framed with clunch and brick infill, plaster rendered, a hipped roof, tiled. single range, part of two storeys and part open to the roof.[12] An adjacent, larger building (see photo above to left) is timber framed and weatherboarded, part of which is original.[12]

[17] Caution, the inclusion of this family group is speculative - they were in the right area at the right time & used similar Christian names. The relatively small population at the time would support the possibility that individuals with the same surname would be related rather than just a coincidence. Hasell has never been a common name in Cambridgeshire.

1.1.1.1.3. Richard Hasill,[1,9,11,12] born 1549, Bottisham, Cambridgeshire.[11,12] Died 1620, Bottisham, Cambridgeshire.[11] Under the Poor Act of 1597,[16] Richard, as a property owner, paid a levy of 30, which was collected by Sir John Payton.[12] Richard, along with his son, John, were members of the "Family of Love" sect; also members were John Ballard (possibly the father of Richard's second wife), Thomas Lawrence (father-in-law of Richard's son, John) and several members of the Rule family (Richard's son, Robert, married a Rule).[14] Richard's son, John, appears to have been a much more active member of the sect than his father.[14] Married 1st Phillippe (Phillipa) Collyn,[9,11,12] 3/4/1569, Holy Trinity Church, Bottisham, Cambridgeshire.[2,3] Phillipa died 11/1580,[9] Bottisham, Cambridgeshire. Married 2nd Alice Ballard, 19/1/1580-1581, Holy Trinity Church, Bottisham, Cambridgeshire.[2,9] Alice died 1618/1619 and was buried 1/2/1618-1619, Holy Trinity Church, Bottisham.[9] {See entry for John {1.1.1.1.3.1} for more details on the "Family of Love"}

In 1589 James Alington bought 120 acres of land at Great Wilbraham from the Hasell family,[17] presumably either Richard or his brother, John (see above). John did have a daughter baptised at Little Wilbraham in 1576, but his grandchildren were baptised at Bottisham. When James died c.1627, his lands passed to his nephew Sir Giles Alington of Horseheath, whose heirs, the lords Alington, owned much land in the Wilbrahams in the mid 17th century.[17]

1.1.1.3.1 Unknown Hasell. {Robert & John, brothers below, are likely grandchildren of either William or Richard Hasell who were living in Cambridge in the 1540's and up to at least the 1560's in William's case.

During the 1580's Robert was curate-in-charge of the church at Milton, Cambridgeshire.[20] He was also a trader in corn.[20] On 12/6/1586 the rectory and advowson in Milton was leased to Robert Hasell, clerk, from John Taylor, rector; the seals of Robert Hasell and John Taylor were attached.[18] Dated 23/6/1586 is a letter of attorney from John Taylor to Robert Hasell, directing Robert to appear at all synods and visitations.[18] Dated 24/2/1589-1590, the assignment of next presentation, by Ann Ladd, widow and executrix of Michael Brisley to Robert Hasell.[18] On the same date was the assignment of William Heron's bond to Michael Brisley by Ann Ladd to Robert Hasell.[18] On the same date bond for performance of covenants on 20/5/1573, grant of next presentation by the Earl of Derby to Michael Brisley, from Ann Ladd to Robert Hasell.[18] On 16/4/1590 Robert Hasell's lease of the rectory in Milton, Cambridgeshire was assigned to his brother, John.[18] {Milton is a few km to the north of Cambridge} On the same date assignments of presentation were granted to Michael Brisley & William Heron, by Robert Hasell to John Hasell, his brother.[18] On 16/5/1592 a covenant for a new lease of the rectory at Milton was made by John Taylor, rector of Milton, to Robert Hasell, vicar of Bryden.[18] {Location of Bryden is unknown. No such place exists today and the compilers of source [18], namely Cambridge University, indicate it is unknown to them as well}. On 9/4/1593 an assignment of next presentation was granted to William Heron, from Robert and John Hasell, to Thomas Smythe of Cambridge; the seals of Robert and John Hasell are attached.[18] On the same date an assignment of lease of the rectory at Milton and of John Taylor's covenant was made, from Robert and John Hasell to Thomas Smythe of Cambridge; the seals of Robert and John Hasell are attached.[18]

The following children may or may not be siblings (see note [19]), they may belong to John or Robert. I have placed them with Robert because John may have been too young to have been the father of the older children listed.
Children: (a)
 
Johannes Hasle,[20] likely born between 1585-1590. Married Margaret Austen, 27/1/1610-1611, St Botolphs, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire.[20]
(b)

William Hassell,[20] born before 1590. {1.1.1.3.1.1.1}
(c)

Agnes Hasell,[20] born before 1605. Married John Green, 27/6/1621, Waterbeach, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire.[20]
(d)

Robert Hassell,[20] born before 1615. Married unknown.
    Child: Elizabeth Hazell, baptised 19/8/1638, Horningsea, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire.[20]

ii.

John Hasell, of age by 1590.[18] John does not appear in the earlier deeds (see entry for Robert) so it is likely he was recently "of age" in 1590, that is, born between 1565-1575. Brother of Robert, above.[18] On 16/4/1590 Robert Hasell's lease of the rectory in Milton, Cambridgeshire was assigned to his brother, John.[18] {Milton is a few km to the north of Cambridge} On the same date assignments of presentation were granted to Michael Brisley & William Heron, by Robert Hasell to John Hasell, his brother.[18] On 9/4/1593 an assignment of next presentation was granted to William Heron, from Robert and John Hasell, to Thomas Smythe of Cambridge; the seals of Robert and John Hasell are attached.[18] On the same date an assignment of lease of the rectory at Milton and of John Taylor's covenant was made, from Robert and John Hasell to Thomas Smythe of Cambridge; the seals of Robert and John Hasell are attached.[18]

[4] The short gap between some of these births could possibly suggest the existence of two Richard Hassil's living at Bottisham and fathering children at the same time, however one of the two gaps of less than 9 months occurs before the marriage to Alice. The most likely scenario then is that in some cases there was a delay of up to several months between the births and the baptisms, a not uncommon occurance at the time.

[19] Caution, the inclusion of this family group is speculative - they were in the right area at the right time & used similar Christian names. The relatively small population at the time would support the possibility that individuals with the same surname would be related rather than just a coincidence. Hasell has never been a common name in Cambridgeshire.

1.1.1.1.3.1. John Hasill,[9,10] baptised 20/5/1574, Holy Trinity Church, Bottisham, Cambridgeshire.[3] Died 1545/1546.[9] John, his father (Richard) and father-in-law (and so presumably also John's wife) were all members of the "Family of Love",[12] a religious sect of Dutch origin also known as the Familists or Familia Caritatis. Founded about 1540 by Dutch merchant Hendrik Niclaes, who had previously been in trouble for heresy, the sect held to the mystic Christian

idea that followers had so much of God's spirit in them that they were a part of the Godhead. They held that all things were ruled by nature and not directly by God, denied the Trinity, and rejected infant baptism. They held that no man should be put to death for his opinions, yet they impartially repudiated all other churches and sects. They objected to the carrying of arms and to anything like an oath to governing authorities, very much like the latter Quakers - no surprise since many Familists later became associated with the Quakers. The message appealed to the well educated and creative elite and its members were usually a part an otherwise established church, quietly remaining in the background. This

outward conformity, along with a disinclination to evangelise, protected the group from persecution and charges of heresy. The sect had its largest following in England, with the largest group being at nearby Balsham. The group included many prominent figures including Christopher Plantin, Phillip II's printer (who moonlighted as the sect's printer). In the 1580's it was discovered some of the Yeomen of the Guard for Elizabeth I were Familists. She issued a proclamation against the sect in 1580, however it does not appear to have been enforced. The sect (in England) essentially died out soon after 1660 with the Restoration of the English monarchy (James I believed it to have been the source of Puritanism), however small numbers appear to have survived until at least the early 18th century amongst the Quakers, Baptists and Unitarians.[11,12] John Hassill married Helen Lawrence,[9] 1595, Balsham, Cambridgeshire.[6] Helen, the daughter of Thomas Lawrence, died 1640.[9] Thomas was a senior member of the 'Family of Love' sect.[10] Despite this, Thomas was buried in the graveyard at Holy Trinity Church, Bottisham, close to the chancel end of the church, indicating that he was very wealthy and a prominent person in the village at the  time.[10] In 1930 the grave was excavated revealing that it had been 'recycled' for Thomas' use and had been previously used several centuries earlier.[10] A village "drama" occurred in 1609 with the reading Thomas Lawrence's will (John Hasell was the executor) the result was the violation of Lawrence's grave by the parish clerk and church warden and the Family of Love was put under investigation with some members held in the castle at Cambridge.[13] Locally the group was established in the 1550's and they were mainly drawn from the wealthy farmers and landowners and became a subculture within villages with their own rules (eg members could only marry within the group, if not compatible wives would be replaced, disappeared or died shortly after the marriage, wills could only be witnessed by members). They tended to dominate the local economy but were under suspicion as far as land and property was concerned.[13] According to one preacher of the time, "This is no family of Love but a family of satan, heretics, wolves in sheep's clothing, vile spiders" whilst a book by contemporary John Rogers called "The displays of an horrible sect of Grosse and wicked heritiques".[13]

Elizabeth Hasell,[4] baptised 17/1/1576, Holy Trinity Church, Bottisham, Cambridgeshire.[3] Married Sampson Ware, 30/4/1599, St Augustine's, Burrough Green, Cambridgeshire.[2,4] Sampson was born c.1575. {According to [4] Elizabeth, d/o Richard is listed in the family records as having "died young", however no date is given. Since no other candidate is known to have existed and Richard's daughter does fit. If Elizabeth had married outside of the cult her father belonged to (the Ware's do not appear to have been members) then it is easily conceivable that to her family Elizabeth became "as if dead"}

1.1.1.1.3.1.1.1. Sir Edward Hasell, born 27/11/1642,[14-17,27,28] baptised 1/12/1642, Hildersham, Cambridgeshire.[15] Died 12/9/1717.[14,16,27] Upon the death of his parents, Edward went to live with Bishop Rainbow in Cumbria,[18] his uncle.[27] For some time he was the steward (chief secretary) of Lady Anne Clifford (1590-1676),[19,20,22,29,31] also known as Lady Anne Pembroke,[20] maintaining that position from when he was appointed in 1668,[39] until her death in 1676.[23] Lady Anne left Edward a considerable bequest,[39] with which, around 1680 (1665[16], 1680[19] or 1679[21-23,29,30,39]) he purchased Dalemain House, in Cumberlandshire, making it the family home.[16,19,21-23,39] Dalemain House's last Layton owner was the father of many daughters and he offered to sell the house cheaply to Edward if he would marry one of them, but Edward preferred not to do so and paid the full price of 2,710.[39] Sir Edward was M.P. for Co. Cumberland and High Sheriff in 1682,[16,17] knighted by King William III,[16,21] and was elected Knight of the Shire in 1691.[16] In 1688 Edward, listed as 'Esquire', was amongst those taxed at the rate of 2 shillings in the pound so that parliment could "granting the King and Queen a Subsidy."[37] In 1693, 1694 & 1696 Edward, listed as 'Esquire' was listed amongst those who were taxed by order of parliment to provide funds for William III for "Four Shillings in the Pound for carrying on the War against France."[35,36,38] In 1698 Edward, listed as 'Esquire' was listed amongst those contributing towards the 1,484,015 raised that year by order of parliment to provide funds for William III for "disbanding Forces paying Seamen and other Uses therein menc[i]oned."[34] In 1701 Sir Edward, listed as a 'knight' was listed amongst those contributing towards the 1,484,948 raised that year by order of parliment to provide funds for William III for "defraying the Expence of His Navy Guards and Garrisons for One Year and for other necessary Occasions."[33] Married first Jane Fetherstonhaugh,[17,27,28] 1678,[27] daughter of Sir Timothy Fetherstonhaugh, of Kirkswald, Cumberlandshire.[17] Jane born 1629, baptised 14/5/1629,[28] and died 18/7/1695.[27,28] Edward had no issue from Jane, however he did acquire Featherstonehaugh lands through the marriage,[39] suggesting it may have been a marriage of convenience. Married second Dorothy Williams,[39] 24/11/1696,[14,25,27,28] Greystoke, Cumberlandshire.[25,28] Dorothy born 1661,[27] was the eldest daughter & heir of William Williams, Esq,[14] of Johnby, Cumberlandshire.[17,39] After the death of Edward, Dorothy assisted her son, Edward in running the estate, even after he married.[39] She appears to have been a very domineering woman, relegating her daughter-in-law to minor roles in the household, rather than "retiring" and handing the keys of the house over to her son's wife, when he married.[39]

Dalemain dates back to at least 1136,[39] and over the centuries has been heavily modified with wings added and a fake Georgian Facade of pink sandstone having been added in the mid 18th century.[19,21,29,30] It possesses a mixture of medieval, Tudor and early-Georgian architecture.[29] The oldest surviving part of the house is an early-12th century pele-tower and hall, on the north side,[29] however the "building" dates back to Saxon times.[30] The hall was floored over in the 16th century and and a kitchen was later added to the east.[29] Edward's son, Edward, completed work on the west and south in 1745.[29] The older buildings, now hidden, were converted into servants' quarters and spare bedrooms.[29] Since then the property has remained in the family and there have been few changes to the building.[29] The reception rooms have late-17th and early-18th century furniture and pictures. The Entrance Hall has a cantilevered oak staircase and displays a large view of the Piazzetta at Venice by Marieschi.[29] The Chinese Drawing Room has hand-painted wallpaper, dating from the 1750s and a wooden Rococo chimneypiece.[29] A spiral staircase in the pele-tower leads to a series of bedroom over the medieval hall.[29] The old parts of the building have typical winding passageways and staircases connecting different levels.[30] A Priest's hidey-hole opens to the housekeeper's room-originally the priest had to climb the kitchen chimney.[30,39] The priest’s hole was added by the Laytons, who were Catholics,[39] somewhat hazardous to the health during the purges of the Reformation!The house was originally owned by the brother (John de Morville) of one of Thomas Becket's murderers.[30,39] Buildings surrounding the cobbled courtyard were added by the Laytons, who owned Dalemain from the 1272 to 1679.[30,39] "Dalemain" means "manor in the valley" and lies about 2.5km east of the village of Dacre. Sir Edward's son, Edward, would latter buy the castle at Dacre.

1.1.1.1.1.1.1.2.1. John Hasell, born 10/8/1654, baptised 29/8/1654, Holy Trinity Church, Bottisham, Cambridgeshire.[6] Died 1705 (49yo) and buried Holy Trinity Church, Bottisham, Cambridgeshire.[6] Married 1st Frances Anne Morden, 29/4/1686, St Augustine's, Burrough Green, Cambridgeshire.[13] Frances died 1689 and was buried Holy Trinity Church, Bottisham, Cambridgeshire.[13] Married 2nd Mary[13] Covell, 1/2/1693, Holy Trinity Church, Bottisham, Cambridgeshire.[7] Mary died 1698 and was buried Holy Trinity Church, Bottisham, Cambridgeshire.[13] In 1870 repairs to the south porch of Holy Trinity Church, Bottisham, were made using three slabs from the church cemetery.[13] Inscriptions on the slabs, now long since worn away, marked the burials of John and his two wives.[13] With the death of John, the story of the Bottisham Hasell's comes to an end after over 200 years. There is no further trace of John's children and it is possible they all died young. By 1700 Bottisham Place, the ancestral home of the Hasell family, had passed out of the family,[18] possibly upon John's death. In 1698 John, described as a 'gentleman' was listed amongst those contributing towards the 1,484,015 raised that year by order of parliment to provide funds for William III for "disbanding Forces paying Seamen and other Uses therein menc[i]oned."[25] In 1701 John, described as a 'gentleman' was listed amongst those contributing towards the 1,484,948 raised that year by order of parliment to provide funds for William III for "defraying the Expence of His Navy Guards and Garrisons for One Year and for other necessary Occasions."[24]

1.1.1.1.3.1.1.1.1. Edward Hasell,[16] Esq., born 1698,[16] baptised 19/8/1698,[14,17] Dalemain, Cumberlandshire.[16] Known as "Blackcap".[16,26] In 1715 Edward bought Dacre Castle in Cumbria, a 14th century border castle built for protection against the Scots, upon the death of the fifth Lord Dacre.[12] Dacre Castle remains in the possession of the Hassell family.[12] Upon the death of his father, Sir Edward, Edward Jr inherited Dalemain House, which remained the family residence.[13,26] Edward's mother, Dorothy, helped him run the property, experimenting with agriculture, breeding a new type of longhorn cattle and creating the Georgian Dalemain that exists today.[26] Dorothy continued to run the estate even after Edward married, entrusting her daughter-in-law with such tasks as the upkeep of the vermin register, a daily record of the number of rats and mice caught![26] Work on the house was completed in 1744.[39] In 1745, with the threat from the Second Jacobite Rebellion,[27] the Hasells withdrew to York, leaving instructions that any intruding soldiers were to be given anything they might demand.[26] Fortunately they returned from their brief exile to find the house untouched.[26] Edward died 1781.[16] Married Julia Musgrave,[10,11,16,26] 20/8/1735.[11,14,16] Julia was the second daughter of Sir Christopher Musgrave, 5th Baronett of Edenhall.[10] Julia was born on 7/8/1716,[11,16] Edenhall, Penrith, Cumberlandshire,[11] baptised 7/8/1716, Edenhall, Penrith,[11] and died in 1778.[11,16,23]

Dacre Castle is in the village of Dacre, about 7km south-west of Penrith, Cumbria.[20] In 1307 William de Dacre was granted licence to 'crenellate' (ie: add battlements & to fortify an existing building) his dwelling on the site.[20] The present building is a pele tower,[12,20] rather than a castle, which was built in the 14th century for protection against Scottish raiders,[20] by Ranulph Dacre.[21] The fortifications were not too effective since the castle was so badly damaged by the Scots in 1317 that it required a complete rebuild.[22] Dacre seems to have been abandoned for the most part of the 16th & 17th Centuries,[22] until in 1674 Thomas Lennard, 15th Baron Dacre and 1st Earl of Sussex, restored the castle and made some additions, turning it into a private residence.[20,22] When the Earl died in 1715, his possessions were sold off and the castle was bought by Edward Hasell of Dalemain and it remains part of the Hasell estate.[12,20] It has been occupied almost continuously from the 14th century.[20] {Possibly by the family of a younger son or the heir until he occupies the family's main estate at Dalemain} The tower has walls seven feet thick and 66 feet high (the windows were added by the 5th Lord Dacre).[12,21] A chapel was added at a later date.[21] There is an unusual horseshoe shaped moat on the lake side of the grounds and the castle is reputed to be haunted by a former owner's wife and lover whom the owner killed.[21]

William Hasell, born 1736,[16] baptised 12/9/1736, Dalemain, Cumberlandshire.[10,15] Known as "The Planter".[16] Died 1786.[16] William inherited Dalemain & Dacre upon the death of his father in 1781.[26] William devoted his life to his hobbies - he bred dogs and bred horses.[26] He lived off the family assets and did not himself have any gainful employment.[26] He was, however, interested in gardens, enjoyed planning the park and had plants brought from abroad.[26] Some of his apple trees are still there.[26] Other plants are said to have died awaiting delivery in the carter’s yard, because the carter refused to move them until previous bills had been paid.[26] William left no children and was succeeded by his brother, Edward.[26]

ii.

Edward Hasell, born 1737,[16] baptised 9/10/1737, Dalemain, Cumberlandshire.[10,15] Died 1794.[16] Prior to his death Edward resided Liverpool, Lancashire.[23] He was a tobacco[26] merchant, although somewhat unsuccessful as a letter written at the time suggests: "The failure of Edward Hasell, Liverpool merchant 1789-1793".[23] Edward succeeded his brother, William, as lord of Dalemain & Dacre.[26] Edward does not appear to have married or have had any children as the estate passes after him to his eldest nephew, another Edward.
