Initially, Id be looking into the history of Whitemead Park (& house) as a possible candidate for a residence with staff locally

'In 1808, Parliament passed the Dean Forest (Timber) Act in response to a severe shortage of naval timber. The act included provision to enclose 11,000 acres (4,452 ha) and responsibility for its execution fell to a young, newly appointed, deputy surveyor named Edward MACHEN. He established his office at Whitemead Park'
