St. Audries was purchased by Robert Balch in 1763 for the sum of £13,662. Upon Robert's 1779 death the property passed to his son Robert Everard Balch. Upon Robert Everard's 1799 death the property is said to have passed to his brother George Balch. George later died in 1814, with no heir, and the property passed on to his sister Christiana .
