1784; Fine two page letter from Sir John Lawson at Brough Hall to Wren & Airey of Newcastle, charged "4"d with CATTER / ICK Post Office hand stamp to reverse. SEE SCAN.

BROUGH is a township of waving woods and verdant meadows, lying on the south bank of the Swale. It comprises an area of 1,082 acres, the property of Sir John Lawson, Bart. Its rateable value is £1,457, and population 120.

It was formerly the manor and seat of the family of Burgh or Brough, which was located here at an early period, John de Burgh, Esq., who died in 1412, was the son of Richard de Richmond, but assumed his mother's name and arms when he inherited, through her, this manor. His widow and son rebuilt Catterick Church. The direct male line terminated in Roger Burgh, whose only daughter and heiress, Elizabeth, conveyed the estate in marriage, early in the 17th century, to Ralph Lawson, Esq., subsequently knighted by King James in the first year of his reign. This gentleman was the son of Edmund Lawson - one of the Lawsons of Cramlington Hall, Northumberland, where his ancestors had been seated since the reign of Henry V. - and Margery Swynhow, heiress of Rock Hall, in the same county. Roger Lawson, Esq., the eldest son of this marriage, wedded Dorothy, daughter of Sir Henry Constable, and possessed lands at Heaton and St. Anthony's, near Newcastle-on-Tyne, but predeceased his father. His eldest son, Henry Lawson, Esq., of Brough Hall, succeeded to the estates on the death of his grandfather. At his decease, Brough Hall was inherited by his eldest surviving son, John Lawson, Esq. In the struggle between Charles I. and the Parliament, Mr. Lawson espoused the king's cause and held a captaincy in the royal army, for which his estates were sequestered and himself banished the kingdom by order of Cromwell. After the restoration of monarchy, he was rewarded for his sufferings and losses in the cause of royalty by being created a baronet by Charles II., in 1665. He married Catherine, daughter of Sir William Howard, Naworth Castle, and was succeeded by his son, Sir Henry, after whom came, in succession, son following father, Sir John, Sir Henry, and Sir John, who died in 1811, leaving two daughters, Anastasia, who married Thomas Strickland, Esq., of Sizergh, and Elizabeth, married to John Wright, Esq., of Kelvedon, and was succeeded in the title and estates by his brother, Sir Henry. This gentleman dying without issue, the title became extinct, but the family estates devolved on his nephew, William Wright, Esq., who assumed the name of Lawson, and was created a baronet in 1841. The present baronet is his son.

The Hall is a handsome stone mansion erected in the reign of Charles I., and subsequently enlarged by the addition of two side wings by Sir John Lawson in the 18th century. Many alterations and improvements were made by the late Sir William Lawson.
