    Notes 
    • Samuel Brandon inherited the love for market gardening and the wealth that went with it. He was the oldest of Richard and Henrietta's children. He must have been born on, grew up, and worked on the market gardens at Rotherhithe.

      Samuel's grandson, Ted, said that he remembers his father saying "They used to have hundreds of Irish workmen on the gardens."

      In 1843 the gardens consisted of a number of paddocks near Deptford Lower Road, and bounded by Paradise Row and Prospect Place. Adjoining his property on the Deptford Lower Road were further paddocks in pasture belonging to William, Samuel's younger brother.

      At some stage, Samuel moved to Marlow, in Buckinghamshire. He called his house there, 'Suffolk Lodge' a reference to their belief that they were descended from the famous Charles Brandon, Duke of Suffolk. He moved there because he was on the staff of the royal household at Windsor.

      In his will he left £16,000. After his death Jane lived on at Suffolk Lodge with her son Samuel.
