Belfield house , Weymouth .


Belfield house , a grade 2 listed georgian mansion was built by Isaac Buxton , {my direct ancestor }in approx 1790  . His grandson Sir Thomas Fowell Buxton married Hannah Gurney sister of Elizabeth Fry { quaker prison reformer ]and became famous as an anti slave trade campaigner  . They are all pictured on the old 5 pound note . A series of chance meetings led me to visit this house {now a private residence } whereupon i made this drawing which will hopefully benefit the Thomas Fowell Buxton society . I am a direct ancestor of Isaac and Sir Thomas Fowell Buxton . By family legend we are related not once but twice to Elizabeth Fry . Whilst i cannot substantiate this  it  may be explained by inter-marriage {marrying cousins] which was commonplace at that time .
