1 The Swinhoes had been owners of Rock for many years, and had ranked with the very first families in the North of England. The estate had, a few years before the date of the above will, passed by an heiress to the family of Lawson. Here is one of the old line with the education of a gentleman (for his will is in his own hand-writing, and few gentlemen at that period could have better acquitted themselves in a similar task,) permitted to linger upon the estate of his forefathers as a farmer, with nothing to leave but his wife's cloaths, and his stock and crop. The termination of his will is perfectly unique, and expressive of strong feeling and resignation.
