Page 97:-
The parish of Bassenthwaite, which was an entire manor granted by Waldeof Lord of Allerdale above Derwent, (and son of Gospatric Earl of Dunbar in Scotland,) to his bastard son Gospatric; his posterity were very flourishing, took the name of Bassenthwaite, and remained owners of it in that name, till Adam de Bassenthwaite divided it between his two daughters; it continued in this family till one of the descendants of the younger sister forfeited his part to the crown, viz. Roger Martindale. It was afterwards granted by the crown to the Earl of Derby, who gave it with his daughter Lady Henrietta Stanley, as a child's portion. to Lord Ashburnham; he sold it to the tenants, reserving a small quitrent, now paid to the Earl of Egremont, though not as part of his great Barony of Copeland aforesaid. The other part came by purchase to a family in Northumberland of the name of Lawson, in which family it continues, and the present owner is Sir Gilfrid Lawson, Baronet, of Brayton Hall, in this county. In this manor are about twenty customary tenants who pay arbitrary fines, and about thirty freeholders who pay to him a small quitrent.
... Bassenthwaite paid tithes of corn, hay, &c. till the year 1773, when an act was obtained for dividing and inclosing the common and waste grounds within this parish. By this act the commissioners were empowered to set out lands upon the common, in lieu of all manner of tithes, moduses, oblations, prescriptions, surplice-fees, &c. which was accordingly done. This method has, on all late divisions of waste lands, been pursued in these northern counties: as there have been many such commons divided within these last 25 years, the convenience of it has been sensibly felt. Both tithe-gatherers and land-holders have been eased, not to mention the avoiding of disputes and trouble with those people called Quakers.
