Note
She was baptised at West Ham Church, London. The announcement of her marriage to William Burrell in the Gentleman’s Magazine mentions she was worth £100,000. She spent much of her time at home in writing and it is for this that she was given an entry in the Dictionary of National Biography. Her work includes poetry, two volumes of which were published in 1793, and two tragedies. She also painted in watercolour views of Knepp Estate. Some of these were etched sometime later. Lo ! Where yon ruin stands ! The poor remains Of what in former time adorn'd the scene; The Muase from history this knowledge gains, That great in former ages it has been; When there the sons of Braose lived renown'd, For marital deeds with wreaths of laurel crown'd. Within those walls, perhaps, in former days, The chiefs assembled at the festive board, The old to cherish, and the brave to praise, Their deeds to honour - or their loves to record; Their deeds were worthy of their mighty name, Their loves were constant as the vestal flame. There might the bard from fair Aliva's eye Catch a bright glance to animate his lyre, And white-robed maidens join in minstrelsy To praise the daughter - and to please the sire. Aliva's name inspired the vocal strain, Aliva's smile repaid the tuneful train. When peace (announcing to the world repose) Her olive ensign on the tower display'd, There some content her habitation chose, And "Joi sans fin" was echo'd through the shade; The fox alone they in ye wylde pursued, Or caught the scaly tenants of the flood. No more the hauberk nor the glittering shield Gleam'd o'er the hill - the spears were cast away; The bugle-horn resounded thro' the field, And Bacchus crown'd the labours of the day: And there Monteagle, wand'ring thro' the grove, Courted and won the object of his love. Alas ! The hand of time with cruel force Has rent the high embattled towers away But condescended in its conquering course To leave the relic that inspires my lay; To leave a lesson for the proud and great, Whose pomp and consequence must yield to fate. Lines on Knepp by Sophia Raymond. Aline (Aliva) de Braose (d.1331), mentioned in the poem above, is the daughter of William de Braose (d.1290-1291) and Aline de Moulton (daughter of Thomas de Moulton of Burgh-on-Sands). They descendfrom William de Braose (1040-1089) and Agnes de Clare. She married first in 1298, John de Mowbray, 2nd Lord of Oxfordshire (d.1321), and second, Sir Richard de Peshale of Penshall. If worth, if learning, should with fame be crown'd, If to superior talents, fame be due, Let Howard's virtues consecrate the ground Where once the fairest flowers of science grew. Within this calm retreat, th' illustrious sage Was wont his grateful orisons to pay, Here he perused the legendary page, Here gave to chemistry the feeling day. Cold to ambition, far from courts remov'd, Though qualified to fill the statesman's part, He studied nature in the paths he lov'd, Peace in his thoughts, and virtue in his heart. Soft may the breeze sigh through the ivy boughs That shade this humble record of his worth; Here may the robin undisturbed repose, And fragrant flowers adorn the hallow'd earth. The poem above, written by Lady Burrell in 1792, is inscribed on a tablet at the spot where the Hon. Ed. Charles Howard built an Oratory and Laboratory at The Deepdene. The Hon. Ed. Charles Howard died at The Deepdene in 1714. He patented the sugar refining process, after making use of the fact that when liquids are driven off by heat in a vacuum, liquids boil at a lower temperature. The benefits included cheaper and faster processing, higher quality sugar and less waste (burnt sugar). The house passed to his brother, the 10th Duke of Norfolk, before it was sold to Sir William Burrell in 1791.
