  • Notes 
    • David Bowker writes :"In 1720 John Bowker purchased part of the Dackham Hall property in Gateshead. John was the owner of Bowker's Chemical Works at Willington Quays, processing sulphate of alumina for the paper, glass and pottery industries."
      The Deckham Hall property was left to Elizabeth Dackham, granddaughter of Thomas Dackham, the original builder and owner of the property. Elizabeth married Henry Mitford.
