We see the following article from The Country Families of the UK 1894: The Titled and Untitled Aristocracy of England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland:
Palmer, Joseph Thomas, Esq., of Debden Hall, Essex.
Eldest son of Joseph Randall Palmer Esq., of Woodford, Essex, who d. 1877, by Mary Ann, dau. of the late Thomas Wincott, Esq.,; b.1840; m. 1861 Jane Ann, dau. of Francis Knibbs, Esq., and has, with other issue, Frank Randall, d.1863. Mr. Palmer, who is a manufacturer in London, purchased this property from the executors of John Williams, Esq., in 1883. - Debden Hall, Laughton

Debden Hall can be traced back to 1777 where it is shown on Chapman and Andre's Map of Essex. Debden House was a section of Debden Hall, and there is a record in 1851 of Essex magistrate John Williams owning the Debden Hall Estate, which included Debden Green House (the present Debden House). On the death of Mr Williams in 1883 the estate was purchased by Joseph Thomas Palmer who owned the printing ink manufacturers Slater and Palmer in Marshgate Lane, Stratford. Mr Palmer resided at Debden Hall with his son and sister-in-law and seven servants. Mr Palmer died in 1898 and his son-in-law Mr Clarke occupied the Hall until his death in 1917. It was destroyed by fire in 1929.
