1 James Brydges had bought the Shaw House residence in 1726 and lived there with his 2nd wife Cassandra Willoughby. After James Brydge's death in 1744, Lydia Catherine Brydges took residence at Shaw House.
2 Lydia Catherine and James Brydges lived in London at least part of the time.
3 James Brydges built the Cannons Mansion. It was demolished in 1747 or 1748.
Lydia Catherine married his cousin, Thomas Davall, who was knighted in 1713 and thus presumably belonged to the upper gentry. Lydia Catherine's second marriage to the 1st Duke of Chandos, James Brydges, gained her the title of 3rd Duchess of Chandos.
