    http://www.pilis.lv/a_pnm/view.php?id=2152&prop_id=211 , and

    Information from these Latvian websites states that John Lewis Balfour, a Scottish nobleman and merchant in Riga, acquired ownership of the Padures estate in 1837; and the estate was owned by Alphons Balfour when he died, and later by his heirs. The current manor house was built at the edge of the parade courtyard facing the driveway after 1837 (apparently in the middle or latter part of the 19th century) in the late classical or empire style for John Balfour.

    COMMENTS BY RAY BALFOUR: The Padures estate was apparently the family estate for John Lewis Balfour and his descendants. George and Ieva Hartwell, who visited the estate in 2001, report that Alphons Balfour (1855-1920) and Edward Balfour (1859-1906) are buried in a cemetery on the estate, as are other Balfours in a line of pairs of graves to the left of the gate.
