57 "Matthew Hutton, to pay his debts, sold Marske in 1630 to his wife's father, Sir Conyers Darcy and Conyers Darcy his son."

"When the Great Rebellion broke out Matthew Hutton took, with his kinsmen the Darcies, the king's part, and, with them, he suffered for his loyalty. Mr. Fryer says that he was fined 1,000?., but in the books of the commissioners the sum which stands against his name is only 132?. 12s. 10d., and he was freed altogether from their claims on the 25th of July, 1651. There is little known of the progress of the Rebellion in Swaledale, but there is a protection granted to Hutton by Ferdinand Lord Fairfax, on the 5th of August, 1644, which shews that Marske, at least, was saved from one of the greatest horrors with which war is accompanied."

Before Matthew Hutton died lie lost his eldest son, a serious misfortune to an afflicted family. Where and when he himself died we do not exactly know. There is no record of his burial in the parish register at Marske. He probably ended his days in retirement far from the scenes of his younth and his father's home. The careful hand of his daughter-in-law healed the breaches which he had made in his estate by her industry and loving care. Subsequent alliances made the family of Hutton richer and more prosperous than ever.

68 "The Kidstons had a daughter. Belle. I suppose her name was Isabelle. And the old woman--Mrs. Duffus and then she was Mrs. Kidston -- invited my grandmother down for supper. And she went down. And Belle was quite the lady. After they had supper, Belle said to her mother to take Mrs. Jones into the parlour and she'd look after the dishes. So this happened. But they didn't hear any dishes being washed or anything, so Mrs. Kidston and my grandmother went out. Dishes were still on the table. Went in the kitchen, there was no Belle there. Went upstairs, and a ladder--she had eloped with a fellow by the name of Irish, William Irish. And he wasn't considered good enough for Belle. But the old girl had hysterics, and started, 'I might have known something was going to happen--Belle washed her stockings today.' So when we were kids, anything special, we'd always say, well, 'Belle had better wash her stockings."

69 "The Moir family business was established under Benjamin Moir, a native of Scotland, who opened a bakery shop on Brunswick Street, Halifax, N.S. in 1830. After his death in 1845, his son William C. Moir took over the bakery. Between 1862 and 1869 Moir built a five-story plant occupying Grafton, Argyle, and Duke Streets featuring a steam bakery, flour mill and retail store which originally operated under the name Moir and Co. A confectionery plant was opened in 1873 managed by William's son, James W. Moir, who introduced the production of chocolates. In 1875 the name of the firm became William C. Moir and Son. James W. Moir succeeded his father as head of the business in 1896 and his brother, William C. Moir Jr., also joined the firm as an associate. In 1903 the firm known as Moir Son and Co. was incorporated as a joint stock company under the name Moirs Limited. A paper box plant was added to the establishment at Halifax, and a chocolate refining plant, saw mill and wooden box (shook) manufacturing plant were constructed in Bedford where the company later established its own hydro power station. On 29 December 1925, Moirs Limited was incorporated to acquire the old firm. The company was reorganized in 1926 and established branch sales offices and warehouses across Canada and foreign agencies in the West Indies, Central and South America, South Africa, and New Zealand. In 1956 the company left family hands and was reorganized under new president F.M. Covert. Standard Brands Canada Limited acquired Moirs in 1967. The Moirs plant continued in Dartmouth as part of Hershey Foods Corporation." MOIR, James Ward (I3136)

72 "The Phillip Family
After the death of the second William Conyers in 1558, Marske passed to Joan his only daughter and heiress who, being under age, became a ward of Queen Elizabeth. A new family now enters the scene when James Phillip, an influential member of the Royal Court, persuaded the Queen to allow his son, Arthur, to marry the Conyers' heiress against the wishes of her family. As a result of the marriage, Arthur Phillip gained possession of the large land holdings belonging to the Conyers' heiress, including the manor of Marske, several parcels of land in the Orgate area of the manor of Clints and several estates in the Richmond and Cleveland areas.
Arthur Phillip leased the Grinton and Fremington mines from the Crown in 1583 with Henry, Lord Scrope, as a partner." from British Mining No 50 Memoirs 1994 pp24-40, Tyson, L.O.

73 "The rector of Gateshead, Lawrence Dodsworth, in his will of this date, sets forth his adhesion to the Protestant form of religion in a long preamble, wherein, among other declarations, he utterly re-nounces " all the Pope's false and usurped primacy, and all his detestable enormities, beseeching God to deliver His church from all his errors and false doctrine, for he is the very Antichrist, enemy and adversary to the glorious gospel of our Saviour Jesus Christ." Gives to the poor-man's box, ios. and a bowl of rye, adding, " I would have given more, but my debts being great, I must seek first to see them discharged." Leaves to his wife Catherine, for life, his farmhold at Hannibie Grange, " upon condition that she therewith bring up my small children most chiefly in the fear of God, and put them forth to prentice or service as she can or may; and if any of them be disobedient or stubborn to their mother, they to have no benefit by this my devise and will." After his wife's death the farmhold is to come wholly to his son Christopher Dodsworth, with remainders to Edward and "his next brethren, one after another," during the lease. Gives his son Edward, after his wife's decease, two beasts, ten sheep, and a horse, to be pastured and fed with the best during Christopher's tenancy of the grange; " and also to have a bedroom there, to come and go at his pleasure." Testator's mother, after the expiration of his father's lease, is to have four kye and ten sheep upon the farmhold during her life and widowhood, paying his wife, or Christopher, or other testator's assigns, being tenants there, 20s. a-year; also the new chamber which she lately built there. Residue to his wife, who is to be sole executrix. Testator prays God to give her comfort and grace to bring up their children in His fear, and commits his flock to the Great Shepherd Jesus Christ, whom he desires to " stir up unto them a lawful and godly pasture;" adding, " Farewell, once again, my dear and loving flock in the Lord, to whose only providence I commit you, myself, and all mine."
