round-topped verdant elevations, give a softness and beauty to this part of the lake scenery that can scarcely be excelled. The town is of great antiquity, and several of the houses are old, singular, artist-like subjects. The Old Hall of the abbots of Furness is now a farm-house. The market-place is pretty spacious, and has a neat town-house erected a few years ago. ...

HAWKSHEAD is a neat small market-town, standing in a warm and sheltered valley, surrounded by the lofty fells of Furness, and is doubtless of great antiquity, although there is no authentic record of its origin. The Free Grammar School has been the nursing mother of many eminent scholars. The beautiful and pastoral lake, Esthwaite Water, may very conveniently be perambulated from this place, and comfortable quarters may be had at the Red Lion. Population, 749; market-day, Monday.

hearsay In the Act against vermin, 1566, Parliament decided that each parish should be responsible for exterminating the fox. The bounty on a fox's head was one shilling; about the 17th century, Hawkshead was paying five shillings.

hearsay In Hawkshead, wiggs are tea cakes. Samuel Pepys took his wiggs with ale.

hearsay The parish accounts, 1689, record that William Braithwaite and William Stamper, apprentices, made a bet with Bernard Swainson, apprentice, that he could not drink nine noggins of brandy - a noggin is a quarter pint. Bernard drank up:-
... and shortly after that fell downe upon the floore; and was straightway carried to his bed where hee layed two and twenty hours; dureinge which time hee could never speke, noe, nor never did know any body though many Came to See him and Soe he dyed.
