The Godschall family were related to the Brays by marriage, and the documents in this and other groups presumably derive from the inheritance of Edward Bray, nephew of the wife of Samuel Man Godschall.
Sir Robert Godschall (otherwise Godscall) purchased the manor of Weston Gomshall in 1729, and held it until his death in 1742. William Man inherited the manor by marriage and assumed the Godschall name in 1752 (see -/7 below). He died in 1802 and was succeeded by the Rev Samuel Man Godschall. Samuel's wife left her estate to Edward Bray on her death in 1823.
For other records of the Godschall family estate, see Zg/91, copy maps of the manor of Weston Gomshall, and G85/19/23, book of reference to Zg/91/2.
For records and an introduction describing the descent of the manor of Weston Gomshall, see 1322/-. A volume of deeds relating to the Duncombe (otherwise Duncumb) family, previous owners of Weston, is held as G85/40.
