... Monks-Hall ... This estate belongs to Sir M. Le Fleming, Baronet, and takes its name from the circumstance of belonging formerly to the Monks of Furness Abbey in Lancashire. It was given to them, (with other lands in this neighbourhood,) by Godartus Dapifer, and was called a carucate of land. Godartus's heirs confirmed the gift, and paid, according to Nicholson and Burn, L.100, and five couples of hounds for a post-fine to King Henry II. At this hall the Monks had a Steward, and here the tenants used to pay their rents. It is now a small farm house, but there are vestiges of a moat and a square building.
