Margaretta Cave Raymond was daughter of Samuel Milbank Raymond, whose family had held the seat of Belchamp Hall on the Suffolk/Essex border since 1611. John Raymond 111 built it as it stands today, as a substantial Queen Anne red brick house, in 1720, set in parklands and overlooking the Bulmer Valley. Belchamp Hall remains in the hands of the Raymond family to this day.
In 1827 Margaretta married Jeremy Pemberton MA (b1786), Rector of Foxearth. The Pemberton family had been extensive land owners in the Borley, Balchamp Walter, Belchamp Otten and Foxearth area, with the living of Foxearth traditionally passed on to the eldest male through the family. The family seat was Easton (Eyston) Hall, Sudbury, one time home of the artist Thomas Gainsborough (1748-9). The Raymond and, presumably, the Pemberton family were patrons of Gainsborough and many family portraits by him have hung in Belchamp Hall.
