The only Brogden gravestone in the St James, South Leigh, churchyard. Isaac Brogden (1832 - 1923) became a farm bailiff (farm manager) for the Eynsham Hall Estate
and lived in several of their properties including Little Green Farm, Home Farm, Salutation Farm, Barnard Gate and, finally, at Windmill House, North Leigh.
The gravestone records the sad loss of several of Isaac's children. Mary survived, married Ernest Morse and moved to Australia. See next photo.
The back of this photo is incorrectly inscribed: "Isaac Brogden and his second wife, Mary, at Salutation Farm, Eynsham, Oxfordshire."
It's actually Windmill House, North Leigh, Oxfordshire, where Isaac retired after the death of Mary. Perhaps the woman in the photo is his daughter Jane who married Thomas Trowbridge and moved to London.
Both Salutation Farm and Windmill House were part of the extensive Eynsham Hall Estate in Isaac's time. They are now in private hands.
Isaac's eldest daughter, Mary, and husband Ernest Morse emigrated to Australia - Ernest in 1886, followed by Mary in 1888.
This photo is owned by Ethel Lawley, Isaac's great grand-daughter in Australia.
See photo of Isaac and first wife Elizabeth's gravestone, above.
