Note
By the time he came of age, William had family connections with all three of the great chartered commercial companies of the City of London in the eighteenth century, The Bank of England, The South Sea Company and The East India Company; with sever al of the principal insurance companies; with the House of Commons; and with the connecting world of government borrowing and contracting. Sir William inherited his Baronetcy and Knepp Castle Estate from his father-in-law, Sir Charles Raymond, in 1789. He inherited Foxgrove Farm from his mother in the same year and bought The Deepdene in 1791. He later sold Foxgrove Farm to his nephew, Sir Peter Burrell. His collection of antiques (including nine super-folio volumes of paintings by Samuel Heironymus Grimm and James Lambert - commissioned for his incomplete works on the history of Sussex) and a transcript relating to Danny Manor, can be seen at the British Museum. The Burrell Arms shown below, created in 1774, show a helmet on top with the visor open, indicating a Baron. Family Arms at this time were simplified in their detail. The original can be seen under the Rev. Gerard Burrell. Published in 1990, ‘Bromley, A Pictorial View’ by Patricia E. Knowlden, includes an old topographical map of Bromley and Beckenham dated 1769. Interestingly, located in the southern part of Beckenham near what appears to be the estate of William Burrell Esq., is a place or church called ‘The Temple’. A William Burrell has been recorded as the keeper of Knepp Park in 1449. Another William Burrell has been recorded as the keeper of Knepp Park between 1499-1529 when 93 deer died of murrain. Written on the memorial at Holy Trinity Church: Sacred to the memory of Sir William Burrell Bt. LLD Chancellor of Worcester and Rochester, Member of Parliament for Haslemere, and afterwards Commissioner of the Board of Excise. He was 3rd son of Peter Burrell Esq., of Beckenham in Kent, and of Amy, his wife, daughter of Hugh Raymond Esq. He married Sophia, eldest daughter and coheiress of Sir Charles Raymond Bt. by whom he had five sons and two daughters. Charles Merrik b. 24/05/1774 William Raymond b. 23/12/1775 d. 24/08/1777 Walter b. 15/04/1777 Percy b. 06/07/1779 Juliana b.11/07/1782 Peter Algernon b. 14/08/1787 d. 09/1787 Elizabeth Amelia b.05/10/1789 He lived universally respected, giving an example to the world of all that is truly excellent, and departed this life at his seat, the Deepdene, near Dorking in Surrey, 20/01/1796 aged 63 years. He was buried in the family vault at West Grinsteadin Sussex. Written on the memorial at St. George's Church: In sacred memory of Sir William Burrell Bt. of the Deepdene in Surrey (The son of Peter Burrell Esq., of Beckenham in Kent, and of Amy, daughter of Hugh Raymond Esq.). He married Sophia, eldest daughter of Sir Charles Raymond Bt., by whom hehad 5 sons and 2 daughters departed this life 20/01/1796 aged 63. Let those whose reverence minds like his, endowed with all that makes men eminently good, worth, honour, justice, all that endear, secure esteem, or claim affections tear, with pious step approach the tomb of one who most was honoured, where he best was known; one in every character the same pursued a line of conduct free from blame and left a bright example to mankind of all that dignifies the human mind. In the same vault are deposited the remains of Sophia Raymond Lady Burrell, widow of Sir William Burrell Bt. (& late wife of William Claye CL) who at the age of 49 departed this mortal life on 20/06/1802 after a long and painful illness whichshe bore with that resignation which becomes a true Christian. The memorial was sculpted by John Flaxman (1755-1826), whose largest works are in Westminster Abbey and St. Paul’s Cathedral. He's best known for his monument to Lord Nelson. Sir William's memorial was moved from St. Mary’s Church in 1891, under instruction from Sir Charles Raymond Burrell. It is in the style of Thomas Hope (he later also lived at The Deepdene - see Sir Charles Merrik Burrell for more information) of his Egyptian period.
