      The first Lord Rivers mortgaged the Melford estate to Sir John Cordel], Kt , merchant, of London ; and his son, Sir Robert, having purchased the estate, it once again became the family seat of the Cordells. Sir Robert Cordell was created a baronet in 1660, but the title and the name became extinct on the death of his grandson Sir John, who was killed by a fall from his horse in 1704. Margaret, his sister, carried Melford Hall to the Firebrace family, by marriage with Charles Firebrace, Esq., eldest son of Sir Basil Firebrace, Kt. and Bart., whose only sister Hester married Basil Fielding, 4th Earl of Denbigh. Sir Cordell Firebrace, their only son, was elected a knight of the shire for Suffolk in 1737, and continued to represent the county till his death in 1759.
