"The house remained in the ownership of successive distinguished families, of whom the most recent was headed by Capt. Richard Bradshaw, who became a Vice-Admiral of the Fleet. His youngest son Arthur, known as Moses, inherited the Grange, where he lived until his death in 1939."

Rai / Graves. Do you have a photo of Bradshaw’s Grave? Came across this, but no comment when he's buried. He Married Emma Walker who I believe is interned in Weld Chapel, Southgate, and London. So was wondering if Bradshaw is with her.

"Name Richard Bradshaw Captain, Royal Navy
Born: abt. 1829

Married:1862

Died:1889 The Grange, Steeple, Aston, Oxfordshire

Buried:

Spouse:
Emma Walker

Dau. of Isaac Walker of Arno's Grove, Middlesex"

"The third “Encounter” was a 14-gun screw corvette, launched at Sheerness in 1873. She was of 1970 tons, 2130 horse-power, and 13 knots speed. Her length, beam, and draught were 220ft., 37ft., and 17ft. In 1873 the “Encounter,” commanded by Captain Richard Bradshaw, took part in the Ashantee War.

In 1875 the “Encounter,” commanded by Captain Richard Bradshaw, was one of 7 ships which co-operated in a punitive expedition up the river Congo under Commodore Sir William Hewett with his broad pennant in “Active.” It was undertaken on account of the looting of the British schooner “Geraldine” and the murder of four of her crew. On August 31st the boats from the “Encounter” and two other ships were towed to the entrance of Chango Creek. One hundred and fifty marines were landed under Captain Bradshaw and succeeded in burning three villages, although they were fired at by natives concealed in the bush. All the villages on the north bank were destroyed, and further punishment was inflicted in Luculla Creek and other places. The labours of the expedition were most arduous, some of the creeks being overgrown with luxuriant vegetation which had to be cut away to admit of an advance, and the country generally was very difficult. Captain Richard Bradshaw was mentioned in despatches as having rendered conspicuous service, and the loss suffered was but 1 killed and 6 wounded. In 1888 the “Encounter” was sold. The fourth “ENCOUNTER” is an 11-gun twin-screw cruiser, launched at Devonport in 1903. She is of 5880 tons, 12,500 horse-power, and 21 knots speed. Her length, beam, and draught were 355ft., 56ft., and 21ft. In 1912 this ship was temporarily lent to the Australian government."
