Dear John, I don't know if you got any where with your quest re Dagnam Park Essex enquiry posted in feb of this year. If it is of any help to you I am a local historian for that area and I maybe able to help you. The Richard Neave that you are looking for was the son of Richard Neave (1773-1858) & Sarah Irvine (she died in 1826) He was born in 1808 and died in 1877. He married Anna Maria Dorothy Eyton in 1838. It was his grandfather who was the 1st Bt of Dagnam Park Essex (his name was also Richard). I maybe able to help you with other items relating to the Neaves and also history and location of Dagnam Park. All the best.
