HISTORICAL NOTE: Kirkstall Abbey owned a total of 19 acres of land in Shadwell by c1195 and in 1333 and 1334 John de Shepley sued the Abbot of Kirkstall for 80 acres. Shadwell Moor Farm was built by a Leeds mill owner shortly after the enclosure of Shadwell Moor in 1803 and 1806. In 1821 the then Lord of the Manor, Stephen Nicholson (of Roundhay Park), bought the estate and built Shadwell Grange by 1831, possibly taking the name from associations with Kirkstall Abbey lands, but there is no evidence as to date. By 1841 the property was occupied by David Cooper and family and the farm had been renamed Shadwell Grange Farm. Occupiers in 1871-72 were C Empson and Elizabeth Shaw. In 1903 the property was owned by Henry Barran, son of the important Leeds clothing manufacturer, John Barran. He had alterations made, including entrance bay with family badge of a bear, a pun on the Barran name.

The pilasters on the rear wall of Shadwell Grange Farmhouse are similar to those at Nos.1-7 Park Cottages, Mansion Lane, Roundhay (qv), also the property of Stephen Nicholson.
