At the head of this dale, where it divides into two grains, is a hunting-box of the Hasell's. The want of wood here gives interest to the few scattered houses which are embowered in sycamore. ...

Martindale was a separate and independent manor, till it was granted by Queen Elizabeth to the Earl of Sussex as parcel of the barony of Barton; she reserving to herself and her successors grass for her pad when she came to hunt there; under this tenure it was bought by Sir Christopher Musgrave, along with the rest of the barony of Barton. The manor consists of small tenements, lying in different little glens, (such as Fuesdale, Boardale, Sandwich, &c.) those lands called the Forest excepted. The forest lands are held on the common forest tenure; the tenants having what grass they can take with the sythe. They likewise covenant not to drive the lord's deer out of it at any time of the year ...

hearsay Between 1706 and 1739 there were 36 wild cats killed in Martindale; there was a bounty on their heads at this time.
The bounty set on moles was three pence per acre to the parish molecatcher, 1566. But in Martindale, 1826, a shilling an acre was allowed for moles that presumed to burrow in the churchyard.
