I don't know if this is information you already have but here goes. This afternoon I walked by Cadeby Hall, which is in in the process of being renovated after standing derelict and because I was so interested in the property I went on Google to find out about it.

The estate of Cadeby came to Hugh Hammersley (1663 - 1714) vicar of Roxby, Lincs through his wife Mary Pye (d 1718) daughter of John Pye of Cadeby. Family history relates that Hugh Hammersley, who was something of a high-living, sporting cleric, gambled this property away to the Pelham family of Brocklesby Hall, Lincs, who were later Earls of Yarborough. Apparently, when the Pelham realised that they had deprived the vicar of his property, they generously granted him the living of Broughton, Lincs (ie made him vicar of Broughton). Cadeby was sold to the Pelhams, who had a mortgage on it, in about 1770 by Thomas Hammersley (1747 -1812), son of Hugh above.

Hugh Hammersley appears to have been a type of the rural Anglican Clergyman such as Fielding and Smollet were fond of depicting. he kept race horses, lived upon familiar terms with his wealthy sporting neighbours in the county and in a short time had deeply mortgaged the estate of Cadeby which had come to his wife Mary on the death of her father John Pye.

His granddaughter was Mrs Allott.

Hope this is of help.
