Background InformationThe Portfield estate was acquired by John Braddyll, of nearby Brockhall, in 1580 and it remained with his descendants, along with the rest of their Whalley properties, until it was sold to James Whalley of Clerk Hill (see Greenwood of Clerk Hill p. 220). The undermentioned documents are the only known surviving ones of this estate, having been preserved by a descendant of Richard Cottam, steward of the property in the mid-18th century.
