Dates of existence



The Bagge family were merchants and brewers of King's Lynn. In the eighteenth century, William Bagge (c 1700-1762), and his sons William (c 1734-1801) and Thomas (1741-1807), were merchants and shipowners, exporting corn and fish, and importing mainly coal and wine. They owned a brewery and a large number of public houses and acquired, through inheritance and purchase, very substantial estates in north-west Norfolk. By the middle of the nineteenth century, the overseas trade disappeared but the coal and brewery businesses continued.
