We now find nothing remarkable till we arrive at the foot of the Lake, near to which is a place called Cross-Dermont, and by Mr Speed, Crostermond: this is only remarkable for a very considerable family by the name of Sisson, who have lived there for several generations, and are the only Roman Catholics within many miles. Cross-Dermont seems to have been formerly a place of some consequence. Both Cambden and Speed mention it, although they take not the least notice of many adjacent places, at this time much more considerable.
