hearsay Monks of the Cistercian Oder at Fountains Abbey, Yorkshire, obtained lands here, including Stonethwiate Farm, about 1195-1211. This developed into a successful dairy farm. the monks of Furness Abbey challenged the arrangement. After a long legal argument the issue was resolved by Edward I, who confiscated the farm, 1304; and promptly sold it back to Fountains Abbey.
