Title: FENWICK FAMILY OF BRINKBURN, NORTHUMBERLAND: RECORDS.
Date: 1760-1924
Description: The collection of Fenwick papers are those belonging to Miss G Fenwick. This collection is in fact largely the personal papers of the Hodgson and Cadogan families, as well as papers relating to Brinkburn Priory. Richard Hodgson was a member of the East India Company in the late eighteenth century. Ward Cadogan was the son of Thomas Cadogan of Barbados and owned a plantation there. In 1825 he purchased Brinkburn Priory. Richard Hodgson's son William married Sarah Cadogan, heiress of Ward Cadogan of Barbados and Brinkburn, in 1825. William Hodgson took the name of Cadogan on Ward Cadogan's death in 1833. William and Sarah bore a son, named Cadogan Hodgson Cadogan, in 1826. He later restored Brinkburn Priory, between 1858 and 1867. Cadogan Hodgson Cadogan's daughter Eleanor inherited Brinkburn Priory through the terms of her brother's will. She married Hugh Fenwick in 1876. It is through this marriage that these papers have passed to the Fenwick family.
