Birth: Jun. 15, 1791, England
Death: Aug. 23, 1858, Wales

seventh child and third eldest surviving son of Mary (Fisher) and John Badley of Blowers Green was born at Blowers Green. "He was also a strong handsome man. He, as his brother Henry, lost money in Liverpool and married a young lady from there who soon died. He had a violent temper and she alone could manage him. He quarrelled with his cousin, John Badley, F.R.C.S., about some supposed neglect and never made it up till after his sister's (Mary Fisher Badley, death. Although his wife did her utmost, before her own death, to reconcile him to his family. He was of a roving disposition and fond of taking commonplace houses, in beautiful places, improving the buildings and gardens and then moving on and starting afresh. He thus improved "Standhills," "Tyguryn" in Corwen, "Lake Bank" on Lake Cathwaite, Cumberland. Aunt Mary knew most of him. She liked to stay with him after his wife's death and he listened to and was guided by her. He loved her more than anyone else"* He died near and was buried at Talgarth, Powys, in the Black Mountains of Wales. (bio by: David
