Hutton Hall.

Near Penrith, Cumberland.—Vane, Baronet.

Hutton Hall is pleasantly situated on. rising ground above a branch of the river Petherill, whose stream gives that accompaniment to the surrounding scenery without which no landscape can be considered complete.

The park is ornamented with fine trees, and its varied grounds give many fine views of the neighbouring country.

As I remarked in a former volume of this work, when a family has to be described which claims an Ancient British origin, going back before Norman or Saxon times, the account of its descent must needs be a long one. This at the same time prevents anything beyond an outline, in a case like the present, when space is necessarily limited.

A mere catena of the names is all then that I can give, as follows:—

Howell ap Vane, living before the Conquest.

Griffydd (=Griffith) ap Howell.

Enyon, surnamed “The Fayre.”
