From Highyate the river runs to Hutton hall the seat of a family of the same name, of whom it was purchased in the reign of James I. by the Fletchers, who, particularly sir George Fletcher, bart. who lived at it, and with whom the baronetage ended, so much improved it by buildings and plantations, that it is now one of the pleasantest seats in the county. The estate is within the Haia de Plumpton, and held of the king by the service of holding the king's stirrup when he mounts his horse in his castle of Carlisle.
