The following account is based upon the assumption that the Susannah Jackson who married Richard Barrow was the daughter of James Jackson who lived at Gatebeck. This has so far been neither proved nor disproved.
In 1569 Thomas Bradley (son of Thomas), a Justice of the Peace, acquired Silverdale Manor, and in 1583, Thomas Bradley of Arneshead else Arnside acquired the Manor of Heversham from Sir Thomas Cecill of Burghley (Northants). Thomas died in 29.Elizabet , when his son & heir William was age 13. In 1595 Thomas Bradley (now deceased) was fined £30 for acquiring the Manor without Royal licence. In 1597 William Bradley transferred the Manor to James Bellingham of Over Levens, at Levens Hall. William Bradley died in 1605, his son & heir being also William (age 15).
