James Langford Nibbs by his will dated 1792 and proved 01/06/1796 left his estates of Popes Head and Haddons or Weeks's (subject to £150 p.a. to his eldest son James Langford Nibbs junior) to his children, including the Rev. George Nibbs, Richard Nibbs, Samuel Nibbs and Barbara Nibbs. By 1806, only Rev. George Nibbs and Barbara Nibbs were still alive, and the two created a new trust with Humphrey Gilbe as trustee for both estates, possibly as a prelude to selling at least Popes Head.
