The Du Cane Family, Braxted Lodge, Essex.
Braxted Lodge, now called Braxted Park, was built circa 1680 by the son of Thomas Darcy who had purchased the surrounding lands in 1650, near the village of Great Braxted in Essex. The house was large and had extensive gardens and lakes, being owned by the Darcy family until 1745 when the estate was bought by Peter Du Cane of nearby Coggeshall. Du Cane, a director of the bank of England and of the British East India Company, enlarged, upgraded and landscaped the property in the 1760’s, where the Du Cane family remained until it was acquired by Sir William Boulton in 1919.
