Richard Neave, a former Governor of the Bank of England and High Sheriff of Essex, who became a baronet in 1795, bought the Dagnam Park estate in 1772 and replaced its house, which was once visited by Samuel Pepys, with a Georgian mansion.
The house and its estate - which eventually swelled to 1,600 acres - was passed from Richard through several generations until Sir Thomas Neave succeeded in 1877 and became the 5th baronet.

The estate was then sold to Richard Neave, a wealthy London merchant. His son, Richard Neave, entered into partnership with his uncle, Thomas Truman Jnr, as a West Indies merchant. During the early 1740s, they hired and purchased several ships to carry general merchandise to the West Indies and America. The Glasgow was purchased in 1746, to trade out of London to Sierra Leone and America. Richard Neave owned several plantations in the West Indies, Nevis, Leeward Islands and Montserrat.
It was a very prosperous partnership. Having made his fortune, Richard Neave, as did many of his contemporaries, turned away from trade to the land, to become an aspiring member of the landed gentry. To be accepted into Society, one's fortune and income had to be derived from the ownership of land; to earn an income from trade was not acceptable. Richard Neave followed the practice of many rich merchants, who after making their fortunes in India or the Indies, renounced trade, making the transition from merchant to landed gentleman, by purchasing a country seat and estates. The first stage in Richard Neave's transition from merchant to country gentleman was to buy Dagnams; the second stage was the purchase of large amounts of land, a policy continued by his son, Thomas.
Richard Neave still kept his connections in the City, he was the Deputy Governor of the Bank of England from 1781-1783 and Governor from 1783-1785. He was created Baronet in 1795, possibly for his services during the Gordon Riots of 1780. He was created Sheriff of Essex in 1794. In the early part of the Napoleonic Wars, he became part owner of the privateers 'Glatton' and 'Royal Duke' 1796.
The third Baronet was Sir Richard Digby Neave, grandson of Sir Richard and son of Sir Thomas Neave.
When the farm was purchased by Sir Richard Neave in 1849, it consisted of 63 acres and to this was added the land of Hungerdown Farm, which had been part of the manor of Gooshays, prior to 1829.
Dagnam Park was purchased by Sir Richard Neave in 1772.

Richard Neave trained as an artist, and joined the Middlesex Hospital, London, in 1957 to study as a Medical Artist, taking a full-time appointment at the University of Manchester as a Medical Artist in 1959, becoming director of the Unit of Art in Medicine in 1990. He became involved in the study of ancient Egyptian Mummies at the University's Museum in 1973, and as part of this project he reconstructed the faces of three ancient Egyptians. The resulting publication drew the attention of other institutions around the world to this work, not merely archaeologists but also the police. He has been a 'guest' of police and law enforcement authorities in Russia, China, South Africa and South America, to name but a few! He maintains a number of teaching commitments, both in the UK and overseas, and continues to lecture at meetings throughout the world.
