Thomas BOTFIELD of Hopton Court, was the son of Thomas BOTFIELD and
Margaret BAKER.
He married Lucy SKELHORNE of Liverpool, daughter of William SKELHORNE, on
February 14, 1800 at Gresford.
Thomas BOTF IELD was the sheriff of Shropshire in 1818. He died without
children on Janu ary 17, 1843.
Along with his brothers, Thomas BOTFIELD became extremely wealth y from
his investments in mines, foundaries and property throughout Shropshir e.
One of the most interesting and revealing pieces about the BOTFIELD
fam ily is an excerpt from a long typescript autobiography entitled:
"The Memo irs of John Bellamy" which is to be found in the Shropshire
John B ellamy [born 9 January, 1808 at Bisley, Gloucestershire and died
14 January 1893 at Westbury on Severn, Gloucestershire] was, according
to the subtitle of his memoirs "a farmer's son, ploughboy, doctor's page,
footman, wandering minstrel, professor of modelling and showman for 55
So what exactly was John Bellamy's connection to the BOTFIELDs?
He saw the BOTFIELD family fro m an unusual perspective---he was a servant
in their household. This is a re al life story of "upstairs, downstairs".
Bellamy tells his story thus:
"...La dy Thomason sent me to Thomas Botfield Esq., of Hopton Court, near
Cleobury M ortimer, Shropshire. This was a great rise for me from L5 to
L10 a year, but I was not altogether fit for the situation [as a footman]
as I knew very lit tle of indoor work. However, I had to learn, and
quick, for Mrs Botfield wa s a regular old crab.
I was given to understand that I must attend to what Mr. Maddox, the
Butler, told me, which I did as I was anxious to learn. He took a deal
of pains with me and soon dragged me through the worst of it.
Everyt hing was in the same style as any of the nobility---two carriages,
four horse s, nine servants in the house and more than that in the
stables, gardeners, gamekeepers, a pack of hounds, huntsman, etc.
Mr. Botfield owns all the coal pits on the Clee Hills near Ludlow; coal
pits and ironworks in different part s of Shropshire and Stafford.
It was said his income was seventy thousand po unds a year. His brother,
William Botfield, lived at a splendid place calle d Decker Hill, near
Shifnal. His brother, Beriah, lived at Norton Hall, nea r Daventry,
Northamptonshire, in the same style. All this wealth was got out of
"Black Diamonds" out of the Clee Hills, the first part of it at all
eve nts.
I used to hear old people at Hopton and Cleobury talk about it.
They c ould recollect old Botfield, their [the brothers' ] father,
hawking coals about Ludlow with bags on a donkey. It was said that he
bought a plot of lan d on Clee Hill, sank a pit, worked it on a small
scale, and continued to take the coals on the donkeys to Ludlow. He knew
the wealth that was under that plot of ground. He soon bought more until
he and his three sons became owner s of all the mines on the Hill and
extended their business in ironworks and p its at Shifnal and
The brother at Norton Hall [Beriah Botfie ld Sr.] died before I went to
Hopton Court. He left one son christened Beri ah after his father. A
remarkable thick-headed clown of a boy.
During the vacation at Oxford he used to visit his uncles at Hopton and
Decker Hill. T hey thought of making a great man of him. He had not a
shadow of a gentleman about him. His uncle used to buy all the property
he could at Ludlow so as to secure the votes at the elections when his
nephew came out in the world, so that he might be returned as M.P. for
Some years after I left t his nephew was returned for Ludlow as Tory
member, but I never saw his name i n the papers on any business in the
House of Commons. He could never have be en anything but one of the
dummies there. He married a daughter of Sir Baldw in Leighton, Bart., but
had not family. The na
