hearsay In the 17th century a magistrate, Mr Duckett, lived at the hall. He sentenced Mr Howgill, a Quaker, to be imprisonned in the gaol at Appleby. Mr Howgill cursed the magistrate:-
Your name will rot out of the earth, and your dwelling house become derelict and a habitation of owls and jackdaws.
Mr Duckett's children all died childless; Grayrigg Hall was taken down, 1777, leaving littel more than a roost for the birds. The present building is a farm on the site.
