Viscount Fairfax had a nephew Francis Bredall who was an apothecary. It would appear he played upon his uncle’s preoccupation with the state of his health and that of his daughter Anne. There are many bills from Bredall recording treatment meted out to the occupants of the Gilling estate. One bill lists 70 items provided on 56 different days. Another includes such entries as: The stomick tincture Yr Lordship 2s.6d. A detergent gargle Laundry Maid 6p. Horse Balls 7s 6p. It would seem that treating animals was the more profitable side of the business!!!
